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
