Thanks to everyone so far on my dual carb question.    Dave, you're 

the first to mention the linkage for 55 or 56 Mopar duals has no 

slot.  My engine is a '57 318.  The rod that has no slots looks like 

an original piece, not a homemade set up, so this may be the correct 

linkage for a earlier dual carb set up.  I will get it right I'm 

sure.  Thanks again to everyone.  All the info is very helpful.    Nick.
