    Hey, I have a tb spacer on my truck (used to have a 350, now a 496, has a TH400) anyway, the cable is like 1/4inch too short, is there some adjustment on it somewhere? I looked down at the pedal and the little nut on the came is all the way at the end, is there somewhere else im missing seeing it? Thanks.

    If you have no adjustment there are a few companies that make aftermarket cables, Locar and Spectre are ones I can think of. Maybe a cable from a rig that had a factory big block is longer???????

    Throttle cable has no adjustment. Haven't seen any RWD GM that has an adjustable cable, just longer or shorter for the particular application.
