I have a Holley 4160 with manual choke. I bought a cable for 12.99 and I'm having issues getting the carb to open and close fully. The choke feels a little stiff but I'm sure the cable should move it. I've got 3 bends in the choke cable before it enters the cab would this affect it? I'm feeling like the cable is crap but its all I could find at autozone should I order from summit or does the cable need to be a direct straight shot from the carb to cab? I know it sounds retarded but this is my second cable the first bent and the second doesn't function the carb

gentle bends are ok, but if they are tight bends or you kinked the cable that is what is making the cable hard to move.

yep

I started to read more on the web and realized I needed to go straight in. I just wanted the choke closer to the driver's side. I was thinking of buying an electric but what the hell the truck is an 82 and it would prob end up failing.

get the electric conversion choke, so that the manuel choke cable isnt on the passengers side. they are easy to install and adjust.
