I have a photo of my adaptation for my carburetor set up.
I have a conventional throttle rod from the steering column to the bell crank on the manifold and a modified Model A throttle rod from the bell crack to the carburetor.

That is a nice and clean set up. Well done.

How does it run?

Neat! By the way, that is a Model B type carb. The B's used a cable connector to the GVA (gas valve adjuster) that you could pull for choke or twist to adjust the fuel. If there is room the Model A style rod assembley will work.

The engine runs good. I replaced the worn throttle shaft with a part from Snyder's.
I use a modified choke rod from a Model A. It goes through a floorboard and works as intended.
