<VV> "Linkage Clips

Yes, have a selection of them to replace if one goes flying.:-)

2L for accelerator pump link, 4L and 4R for carburetor linkage clips. 
They (the metal ones on Corvairs) are simple, any replacement is more 
trouble to install.

Note the original size choke clip, 1L, has been discontinued for over 
ten years! Clark's supplies a 2L, sloppy fit. Save those old ones, and 
go after the ones that "got away, twing" .

Tool for removing the throttle linkage clips on Corvairs is a #2 
Phillips screwdriver.  You already have it in your hand to remove the 
brackets mounted to the top of the carburetors, and it pushes both sides 
of the open tangs so it comes off easy.

Now if you are inside a modern door with a broken plastic linkage clip, 
drill a 1/16" hole trough the rod and use a couple washers and a 1/16" 
cotter pin to replcae that broken clip. Done this countless times.
