    Posted: Mar/20/2017 at 7:55pm
I have stirred the parts for 2 different 196 motors and was too stupid to take pictures. Could someone send/post a pic of the top of a flathead that shows which headbolts/studs are long and hold the throttle linkage and the coil mount, etc. I have 3 long studs and a need for 2 bolts. The rest are normal studs with nuts.

I have a plate that holds the carb linkage and a plate that holds the coil, each with 2 holes. Don't know where they go.

It's a 61 going into a 58 and things changed.

Thanks.

Google AMC 196 flathead,  and go to images.  There'll be some pictures that may help you.

With all due respect, I tried that first. Also nothing in my original shop manual, parts manual or TSB book from 1958.

All I need is a good photo of the top of a flathead.

I noticed from the pictures I looked at,  there was several different ways the coil, and throttle were secured on the flathead,  it depends on the year evidently.

There is one very good picture of a 61 Flathead on my Google images,  but I noticed several variations in the other pictures.

Maurico, that's the first time I've seen a 61-63 American with a factory heater delete panel! I knew the heater was optional in some places, just never saw one! Must be a Mexican model.

Thanks. They must have changed the throttle linkage almost every year.
