    Get the 454 running tonight but need to find a throttle cable to fit. I moved the engine 1" forward and it has a taller intake and a edelbrock q-jet carb and the stock calbe seems too long and the one from the 83 doesn't look wo work on the pedal side. What have ya'll done?

    I didn't move the engine forward but I just put the 454 in with an Edelbrock carb and intake. Used Bowtie Overdrives' mount for the TV and accelerator cable. The accelerator cable seemed too long but once it was hooked up I can press the go pedal and it will take it to full throttle.

    mine is too short, like the part that clamps into the bracket won't reach the bracket and the part that clamps on the actual linkage on the carb won't reach either.

    I read your first post and understood it that the cable was too long.

    got it today. picked up a cable for a 80s something truck and used the gas pedal from my 83 truck and it all worked out great. I'll post current pics next week, am heading out driving truck the rest of the week.

    throttle bracket

    speaking of throttle cables. i got the THREADED ROD type on my blazer.. and the PO lost the part that goes ont he rod.. actually the whole thing.. so i ordered a rod from LMC and they didnt offer the thing with a hole in it that goes around the rod to hook to the carb.. if anyone knows what im talking about and knows a source let me know.. i got electrical wire operating my throttle now.

    i think that was my problem was the connection at the pedal itself. The newer style truck pedal bolts right on and used that platic clip on cable.
