Edelbrock 1406 questions about throttle plate.

I know where the part number 1483 goes (mounts to current linkage). Part number 1495 I'm not sure about where it mounts? It is called the throttle cable plate. Does anyone have a picture of it installed?

I think that's only for a 460 engine. I THINK that what you picture is only a portion of it.

Does it look like you need to align your throttle cable with the carb?

You are correct that it is for a 460. The part pictured is all that was in that package for #1483. There are no pictures, diagrams, or installation sheet with it.

Doesn't look like anything that's attached to mine, but I'm also running a 400... good luck.

The best descriptions I can find online seem to indicate that that will be installed on the rod that actuates your throttle cable and is used to make the throttle cable level with the throttle lever on the carb.

Can it mount vertically on the throttle lever coming off of the pedal, with the little ball stud thingy going through one of the holes in the bracket?

Got no personal experience with this part number...just the carb. So, it's a shot in the dark, at best.

Did you run the carb on a 460 with a c6?

Trans shouldn't matter if it's just throttle linkage and not kickdown.

Awful damn shiny. Otherwise it looks like mine. Still can't see why you'd need that fancy bracket -- you don't have cable throttle... wait, what the hell is that on the right?

Here's mine.

The black thing is a bracket that I have no idea what it is from or where it came from.

see the blue rod hooked to the linkage on speedyweasels carter?the random black bracket looks like it was for cruise control at some point.now the kickdown rod hooks to the linkage in a way that whenever you punch the throttle, it pushes the rod back and downshifts to second(see the screw where you can adjust it?)

That's not a cruise control bracket. Looks to me like that 460 used to be in a cable throttle application and never had the bracket removed. And yes, the blue rod is my kickdown. The screw below it is to adjust how much pedal it takes to force a kickdown.

Since my kickdown is a cable and not a rod it makes my edelbrock 1483 (Ford Throttle Lever Adapter) not work correctly.

I think that was for the cruise control.

After checking the situation out last night I am going to remove the edelbrock 1483 adapter and hook the throttle rod and kickdown cable to carb as is.

On another note, do I need the idle stop solenoid for the a/c? If so I will fab a bracket, if not then no big deal.
