Post TH 350 kickdown cable, do I need it?

My 81 camaro had a 267 with a TH 350 tranny in it. I swapped the 267 for a 4-bolt 350 with a rochester quadrajet carb. I no longer have the bracket for the kickdown cable. Will have to get one for the tranny to operate correctly? What are my options? Now my throttle cable is to short for the carb due to the 267 having a 2-barrel, and the rochester is a 4-barrel. Do they sell different types of cables and where can I find one that will work for me? Thanks for your help, Bill

Lose the slobber jet. A edelbrock performer and 600 edelbrock carb would work great.Another $350.

350 dont have to have detent cable (passing gear cable) to work, you can make your own cable from another cable and yours by going to parts store or harware store ask for a lawn mower throttle cable stop ( small brass piece with a screw thru it)install your 2 cables in the brass piece you can adjust to any length you need if you have a bracket on intake, low cost repair or most parts stores sell universal cable

Do you have access to a junkyard or any donor cars? If you do find one with the same stuff you have, the four bbl carb, and the detent bracket for a 350 turbo. Then take the bracket and throttle cable off of that car. Some gm's have the throttle bracket and detent in one and some are seperate. Getting the throttle cable off of the pedal inside is easy, you'll need two screwdrivers to push in the plastic sides on the cable housing to get it out of the firewall. That's the nice things about gm's alot of things are interchangeable. Later

hi ya rodder, i hear that a universal kickdown cable can be purchased for less than $15.00 by ordering one from http://www.natauto.com as far as the bracket goes try to find one off the same size engine using that type of trans...or have the bracket custom built at a fabrication shop..good luck p.s. use type F fluid in the turbo trans...AKA liquid shift improver......mark...
