Throttle Pivot Repair 1950-52 Passenger 1950-59 Truck
When the throttle pivot wears out on your 216, 235, or 261 there is an easy fix.
Sample of pivot wear
Most hardware stores carry 3/8" ID X 1/2" OD X 1" long brass bushings.
By drilling out the lever and pressing in a bushing you get a better than original fix.
Lever drilled with 1/2" drill
Bushing installed, this is a light press fit
The 1" bushing needs to be shortened to .850" either before or after assembly in lever.
