Carb swap - linkage question

'83 CJ-7 with 350/350TH/NP208

Swapped out an old Holley carb for an Edelbrock Performer 650 cfm (P/N EDL-1406). The throttle and kick-down linkage bolted right back in place using the existing throttle cable bracket. However, I noticed a problem. First off, the carb didn't feel like it was getting full throttle at WOT. After taking it for a ride, I inspected it and noticed that the bracket is now bent forward - telling me that there is not enough cable.

How do I adjust it so I get all the cable that I need?

Should I replace the existing bracket with the one that Edelbrock recommends (P/N EDL-8036)? If so, will this cure my problem?

Thanks for the help

Re: Carb swap - linkage question

did you adjust the detent cable? It maybe be differnet now and not it is too short and pulled the bracket??? I've never had evperience with a TH350 but the 700R4 to adjust the detent cable push the D shaped button down and slide the black square slider all teh way back toward the firewall then hold the button and give it WOT and that should get it close then adjust by trial and error on the street. Hope that might help. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
