Edelbrock Carb TH400 Kick down switch

Details.
66 Chev 396ci
TH 400 (early build)
Edelbrock 1411 Carb.

Question
As the configuration of this car does not have a pedal mounted kickdown switch I'm attempting to use a nitrous microswitch mount on the aforementiond carb. EDL has provide little if any help so far so I'm bringing the question to the experts!
Anyone have to do similar mount (either kickdown or nitrous) who could take a decent dig picture and email it to me would have my eternal gratitude!

I got mine from a local GM dealer (stock unit). Can't rememeber the price. I made a little bracket out of alum angle. I use it on a 750 holley. I'll try to snap a photo of it.

I like the stock part because it is a long travel switch that is made for this application. It makes electrical contact at 3/4 throttle then will not stop the throttle from going to WOT (long travel). A N20 switch works good for WOT.

I couldn't email you any photos because your web set up didn't allow it. So, I posted a few photos in my photo album.

I built a "plate striker" on the throttle linkage.

I would also recommend that you use a holley carb. Those edelbrock carbs are junk.
