Try edelbrock 1484 throttle arm adapter and a 8018 tv stud. It is adaptable to alot of carbs.

However I would avoid a predator carb for any use.

i figure its like ford and chevy. some people love predators and some hate them.todays predators you can get one with an idle circuit.and i find lots of people mess with the adjustments to much as if they were regular carbs,instead of learning how properly.thanks for the input.

Summit, Jegs, Edelbrock, all sell throttle cable brackets the will hold both your throttle and TV cable, plus adjustable arms are available to attach a TV stud to the right position on your throttle arm. Its a little bit of fabrication, but shouldnt be hard at all. Just get the angle of the cable correct so its pull properly.
