    I took my stock bracket, cut off the bottom and just welded in another piece that bolted up to two back manifold bolts. wasnt too difficult, you just have to look at it, and determine where the bracket went on the stock manifold ( lengthwise, depthwise, and widthwise). from there just weld a piece in that connects the bolts to where your bracket needs to be

    Was more qurious about hot to attach the cable to the actual throttle body so it had the same arc as on the carborator. So the cable moved with the Throttle same as before.
