    Ok guys and gals.....My car is in Montana and I am in NY, the person working on the car is having an issue finding a throttle bracket and cable for a conversion from a 318 set up to a mid 80's 360 with a LD340 intake and Edelbrock carb. Back in the early 70's I did a conversion from a 318 to a 340 with an LD340 and if I remember correctly I did have to modify the factory throttle bracket slightly because the LD340's runners were wider but its been close to 50 years so I may be wrong...can I get some help? I find it hard to believe that everyone that does a conversion has to buy after market parts. Mancini calls for a 24.25" cable but the problem seems to be at the carburetor where he says the cable doesn't line up with the throttle linkage.

    I think Mancini sells the right bracket.

      You might look at Lokar, they have both throttle cable and bracket.
