Title: cables, brackets & adaptors
Post by: Alan on February 13, 2009, 06:50:50 AM
I'm putting a new engine in the 67 port in the near future and have some questions about what adaptors, bracket, and cables I will need. This is my daily driver so I'm trying to gather everything I need prior to the swap to eliminate downtime. The new engine will have an Edelbrock performer carb and manifold. Can I use the stock throttle cable or will I need to change it? I need to change my existing 2 bbl cable anyway. Lea has available both 2bbl and  4bbl stock cables. Can I use either of these on my new setup or is it better to go with aftermarket? Will the stock throttle and kickdown linkage /brackets work or do I need new ones.  I know edelbrock makes a Chrysler throttle linkage adaptor for stock cables but I'm not sure if I need it if I'm changing the cable. Lokar makes a kickdown setup, but I'm trying to avoid the hefty cost if I can. I'm sure this is a common setup so your experience is appreciated. Thanks

Use the 4BBL factory cable and use the Eddy cable mounting bracket to fit the intake.
4BBL carb throttle shaft sits further forward compared to the 2BBL hence the longer cable required..
IIRC,you can use kickdown rods from a 440 car since they are longer and will accomodate the taller intake.

Here's a pic - I left it in large format for clarity.
Ignore the top cable - that's the cruise control.

The engine is in and just about ready to go. Of all the engines I have swapped in my life, this one took the most time. Not the easiest swap I have ever done.
 
The new Edelbrock carb and intake look great. The only thing holding me up is the throttle cable bracket. The original sits too low and the downshift part of the linkage hits on my new valve covers when it swings. Lea, you mentioned an Eddy bracket, do you have any info on this? I looked on their website but didn't find anything. I would think this is a pretty common setup, how are others overcoming this problem.
 
Thanks

Google "mopar hi rise throttle" 
In my opinion, the one Rick Erhenberg sells on ebay is the best one.  I used it on my Fury.

You also need to get the linkage adaptor for the Carb as well
