    I have a '69 Dart that was a 318 2 barrel car.
    Is the throttle cable the same for the 340 4 barrel cars or different?

    In 67 the 2bbl vs the 4bbl 273 calls out different part numbers so my uneducated vote is different.

    I bought the car with a 340 installed that I pulled and built into a stroker.
    Has a Victor intake 1/2 spacer under a Pro Systems Holley.
    I have the new cable mount for a high-rise intake & the Holley extender for a Mopar.

      My car was originally a /6 car. I used same cable when I did the big block swap back in ‘87. Cable was too long back then going to a 4bbl v8. Now I’m fitting up a dual quad hemi so you need an even shorter cable. On Mancini’s site, he only has one cable listed for all engines in our cars. Hence my choice to go with the B body unit which is shorter.

      I see,got it.
      Mine seems a little long to me,it's the oem 2 barrel cable.
      Gotta get someone in the car to see if the carb is wide open or not.
      I have a new cable for a '69 b-body in the shop.
      If mine's not opening all the way I might give it a try before ordering a new one.
      Thanks
