216 235 Throttle Pivot Positions

Up to 1959 full pressure 235's had two throttle pivot position provided.
Starting in 1960 they dropped the front pivot spot which is often necessary, especially when installing a 235 in place of a 216.

Pre 1960 pivot spots

 When installing a 1960-62 engine in a pre 1960 vehicle instead of chopping up the throttle linkage I drill and tap the side of the engine and install a pipe plug that I have drilled and tapped for the pivot
My conversion
