I'd say you need an IDF linkage for the IDF carbs rather than re-using the crappy Kadron linkage. CB Performance, EMPI and Gene Berg all make decent IDF linkages.....

It looks like you have a bell crank linkage in the top pic? mounted to the engine block rather than the fan housing/air filter bases?

If so: i'd take the linkage arm off the carb spindle, you should should be able to flip it over so the ball joint points to the rear of the car, and the arm is 90degrees round from its current position (pointing down the way). You should be able to swap the arms on the bell crank around if necessary to make it push or pull the arm in the required direction to open the butterflies in the carb. Hopefully this will give you the clearance round the fan housing you require.

perhaps i didnt explain myself properly [no change there then] when i hook up both ends of the linkage one carbs throttle will open up but the other wont budge as the throttles are moving against one another does that make any sense?
