Check out our newest product! Part Number 9168K. Two threaded linkage ball studs with 7mm (0.275in) diameter balls – the same as Stromberg choke and throttle shaft connections. These handy new Stromberg linkage products feature half an inch of thread and nuts are included. Price is US$15.95 or £9.95 depending on where you live.
Use Linkage Ball for Cable Throttle
So where do you use them? For hot rod throttle cable connections! At 0.275in diameter, (others are only 0.25in) Stromberg linkage balls are designed to work perfectly with our 9164K Linkage Bombs and 9166K Rocket Clips. Check out these two applications below. Some aftermarket throttle cables come with a bare cable – use the 9166K Rocket Clip. Some come with a threaded connector swaged to the end of the cable – use a 9164K-R Linkage Bomb (with a right hand thread).
On both applications you simply insert the Linkage Ball in place of the small set screw in the end of the swivel on the lever you are pulling. It clamps the linkage rod perfectly – you can use the small hex on the ball to tighten it. Both use the same 10-32 thread. The lock-nut is supplied for other applications as required.
Here, they are pictured with Stromberg 9091K lever arms (as part of a TwoStep 2×2 direct linkage), and a 9136K Cable Throttle Mounting Bracket.
