Throttle cable swap... how does the pedal end hook up?

I have a 73 Ford F100 that I have modified a biut,. and I beleive that my stock cable and linkage is not going to fit anymore.

I see that even autozoen carrie z universal swap kit and bracketry, but I don;'t se where the pedal gets hooked to the pedal.

Mine is the rod type...

Thanks guys!

What kind of mods did you do? What size engine and type transmission is in there now? Do you have cruise if its auto? The F100's have so many combinations of throttle cable/linkage combinations that your head will spin, especially if you're swapping motors from different years, and/or of different sizes. Oh and don't forget kickdown linkage either. I have a '74 effie that's a real mongrel, so if you can be more specific maybe we can share some ideas.

OK, I was looking for a general answer, as I figured there was a general method of going from rod to cable...

It is a 73 F100 240 inline six(same block as 300) and it is a stright drive 3 sp.

The rod comes from the pedal and sits directly behind the engine and... well I'll use a picture...

OK, I have mofified an intake manifold from a later model 300 and plan to mount a holley 4160 (390 CFM) 4bbl to the modified intake.

There is a thread on tihs here also if you are interested in more details.....http://hotrodders.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=19694



Thanks guys!

My first question would be is there a point to where you can mount a bracket? On the 80-86 302's there is a cable/pedal setup where a wire cable (about 14") connects to the ball on the carburetor accelorator linkage and then to the pedal rod. The bracket mounts to the manifold, and there is a plastic "V" shaped grommet with a notch at the bottom of the "V" wherein the cable snaps, but moves back and forth freely which is mounted to the bracket. The wire cable is held in place by the plastic "V" grommet and directly couples to the pedal rod. The return spring keeps the cable tight.

It seems like a variation of this might work for your setup. The trick would be getting a bracket to mount close enough to the pedal rod so that the plastic grommet/bracket would be the pivot point. The tension of the return spring and the placement of the bracket would keep the pedal rod flush. Ideally, the wire cable would also be plum with the pedal rod, although that might be tricky.

I can't draw on this thing, but I drew it out on paper, and it looks like it could work. This is just a suggestion, though, and I'm not sure if it will work.
