    The original pitch was 420 x 115. That is not enough links that you posted. I bought 420 x 120 and have a few extra links taken off.

    That chain should work but to be sure get one with 120 links and cut it to fit.
    Here is a link to one thread where I showed the engine plate bracing. I chime in on page 13.
    Post pictures of both sides of your T-Bird, front view, rear view etc so we can help you better.
    Thanks

    No problem. There are many other threads on Thunderbirds. Just use the search feature and read all you can. That is how I found about bracing the engine plate. I read where someone else did it. After I fixed mine, the chain never came off again. I automatically braced it on the next T-Bird I bought.
    Have fun.

    I took a better look at the motor. Found a sears sticker. I looked up the model # and it appears to be a rebranded Tecumseh H35. I bought a new plug and fuel lines. Hope to get it going. Photos soon

    Dropped the bowl. Fairly clean. Checked the jet. Ran a pin through them. Put it back on and a fuel line. Couple of pulls and started up. Ran decent, no smoke. It studders at full throttle, assume that is the govenor?? I will need to order the Tecumseh speed comtrol bracket 730136A, a throttle cable and chain fir now. Eventually a clutch brake set up.

    I have the Tecumseh h35 and want to run the throttle cable like this. 2A336C37-567A-4C0B-96A2-A8C4A4293FB5.png. Anyone know how long of a cable I need?

    Get a long cable. You can cut it to the length you need. Pull the outer off and cut it with some diagonal cutters. They cut easy.
    After you assemble things and have the inner cable hooked up and everything working, then cut the inner cable with the cutters or a dremel tool with cut off wheel. Put some RTV on the end to keep the wires together when you are done.
    I buy and use a lot of these as they are cheap and work well. You will need to cut the little tit end off it to remove the outer cable sleeve.
    This one has a 50" cable.
