First, that “glop” is on the throttle linkage, not the TV linkage. Second, the linkage is hosed because whoever swapped in that Qjet apparently only knew how to use a torch and a sledge hammer. The stock linkage isn’t going to do you any good with a Qjet. I had to fabricate my own linkage when I did the E-brock swap. Adjusting the TV linkage took trial and error.
