Round and flat shafts don't interchange. I just bought a flat shaft  accelerator pump off eBay two days ago for about $20. We'll see what the quality is...

Thanks guys, Hoping the fuel pump is alright and I won't need to replace it. So here are a couple more photos of the issue I am having with the rebuilt carb. The threaded bit that this bushing/arm/return spring are supposed to attach to has been filed off. I did not see anywhere a different spring setup could be used but I could have missed it surely. 

Here the stock image from Rock Auto shows the part I am missing in place.


Here is my actual carb with the part filed off



Here is the old carb with the parts in place. Note: I removed the nut and washer to transfer the parts before realizing it was not possible.


Here are a few other photos of the new carb in place. Is there a second place that spring could go?

The pump I'm talking about is the accelerator pump in the carb. Not the fuel pump.

Rock Auto's customer service was absolutely useless when I asked about the part problem. So I emailed Autoline themselves. They are sending me a replacement throttle plate so I can transfer the parts over.

Just my $.02 but I would send the carb back to Autoline and either make them fix it or get a refund.  The carb you thought you were purchasing was shown by Rockauto to have the correct parts, correct?  Joe

I wanted to do that obviously. Unfortunately the carb was purchased a year ago and just sat. With the distance the car was away from me and only getting up there on holidays the flaw went undetected. It did cross my mind to order another and return the flawed unit.

Received the replacement throttle shaft in the mail last night. Got it replaced and back on the car and everything hooked up. We are now much closer to getting this baby running again. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to help me sort it out. I will have plenty more!

Hi everyone,

What is the spacer under the carb called? And where can I get one? The pcv hose connects to it. Today the port broke right off while trying to remove the old crusty hose....

they usually break. it's a dumb design. if the rest of the plate is OK a cheap and solid fix is to file the broken stub flat, and drill the remaining hole just large enough to tap into place a short section of 3/8" or 5/16" steel tubing, whatever that hose wants. then JB Weld on the tube, tap it in, let it cure, and go. it'll last forever.

Hey everyone, Been away a little but need to hunker down and get this thing ready for a road test. It starts and runs but seems to have issues with the linkage still. If I rev it up it kicks the choke back on and raises the idle. I'm not sure why this is happening. Could I have a spring on incorrectly?
