I don't know what they use in that regard. The lever pushes downward.

I guess it might be possible to modify the lever to where the arm faces backwards so that a cable can pull it upwards?

Then you will have to fab a bracket to attach somewhere to hold the end of the cable on the lever side.

Make the arm face straight upwards might be best and the cable pulling it forward.

Try and post that link again by itself, it is not working for some reason.

Does you Holley have any of the gold finish left?

OK. I was just wondering as some of those chemicals are pretty strong or used to be before they were watered down like the new Chem Dip and would remove the finish if you soaked them too long.

I use an old 2 qt stainless steel pot normally and soak 1 large peice at a time, first one for an hour then switch the next one in, time permitting of course. if they're real grimy they go back in.I've mostly just fixed leaks and made them run. Farm trucks, as long as it starts its good. The shop I work at is all about the edelbrock carbs, I recently started reading about the holleys and realized no-one at my shop has a clue about them. I've since become the ford/holley expert, somehow I'm the mercedes guy too, makes me feel dirty.

Try throwing your cleaned parts in a boiling tank of distilled water with some TSP in it for an hour and see if anything else comes out of them in the bottom of the tank. Not a big fan of Edeljunk myself either, LoL.

Don't put the base plate or any aluminum in the TSP unless you want it to come out black.
