Original Cowl Induction Throttle Arm
« on: August 08, 2015, 01:03:44 PM »
Is there any way to tell an original or gm piece from a reproduction-was at a friends house and he had a cowl induction throttle arm-he wasn't sure if it was a reproduction or not-the only stamping I saw was  "C" stamped on it-whats a gm one worth?Thanks in advance!
Keep on Cruising!

no expert here but I remeber a conversation about the bolt that tightens this to the pedal being smaller or metric?

I would not base worth off of what Heart beat city charges. They charge a ton, and not 100% the right parts being sent out, or description is off.

Do some research on eBay, for closed auctions. When you see multiple listings for the items selling that should be a good indicator.

Good luck.

Back in the day CPX had the switch bracket reproduced by a local tool shop. All you needed was a '68-'69 ['67s are shorter] throttle arm to weld it on. Sold hundreds of those with directions on where to position it for welding.
Learning more and more about less and less...
