    I have a magnum 408. I bought the AR engineering bracket for the throttle cable. Seems the bracket sits too far forward on the intake. To adjust and lock down the cable it's just about out the back of the holder. I have another cable and that distance from that collar that gets clamped down on is the same. Am I missing something? Is there a specific cable for this set up?

      I can move it side to side with a little effort. Not really comfortable with that
