Source for tii linkage?

Hi folks, it's been awhile since my restoration, and I am thinking about refreshing some of my tii parts. Is there a good source for the tii linkage that is somewhat reasonable in cost? I don't even see it on the Maximillian site, where I spent $10K or so a decade ago....

I have some linkage odds and ends, send me a pic of what you need and I'll have a look. jmschneeman@msn.com

OK, I missed that page on the Max site! I was looking in the fuel supply area... Nice find on the Pierce Manifolds site. Looks like you can certainly get the raw materials there for much less... thanks!

Jack is the tii linkage man.

It's interesting how the gurus in the 2002 parts business each have a certain little item of specialty.

I am in the process of refreshing some of my linkage as well. some of the pieces like the vertical rod and cup i got direct from the dealer. all were in country and available.

others like the three rods I rebuilt using volvo ends.. they were in stock at the dealer right and left hand thread.

All the linkage is still there, and still available. At least the rods are still there, and some of the pivot parts.

If you need just the ends, you can go to http://www.piercemanifolds.com/ and just purchase the ball ends themselves.

What size of ball ends do I need to fit tii linkage (at piercemanifolds)?

TIA

Sorry I don't have the part numbers or price as i have had them sitting for a while, but i do have the source thread where i found out the info.

they are throttle body linkage ends from a 740 volvo 1984-1993 approx..

quote from the thread..

"It was nice to meet you at Springfest. Here is some more info about using Volvo linkage as a plentiful, cheap alternative to use for tired tii linkage. My linkage was sloppy and on a hunch I tried the throttle body linkage off my Volvo 740 to see if the plastic ends would fit. They did and the thread is the same as the existing tii rods! I went to Pic-A-Part and took several sets of linkage to use for my tii. They can be used from any 740 and probably any 240 from (I'm guessing here...) 1984-1993. They are threaded right and left handed on each end of the rod. I also used them to replace the fixed length center rod. For this I used a 3 inch long screw of similar diameter and thread and cut the head off with my dremel. Then I used 2 ends on each end of this rod and made it the same length as the old. Linkage ends must be used from 2 separate Volvo's for this modification as each end of this rod now threads the same direction. Locking nuts were used all around and the ends were lubed prior to installation. It works great and the slop is all gone. Here are a couple pics to demonstrate. The first is a pic of the linkage as installed on a Volvo 240. It is in the center of the photo by the throttle body. The second pic (look close here, my photos suck) shows 2 of the ends on my tii. The end of the first rod and beginning of the second can be seen in the middle of the photo. Hope this tip works well for others...pass it on."
