Throttle cable bracket (2bbl setup)

Could somebody that have 2bbl Rochester carb, post picture of their throttle cable bracket? I think I do not have the original one and I wasn't able to find a replacement one at any of the usual stores.

A link to one would work too.

Thanks.

Most two barrel equipped cars used a throttle rod not a cable. Most two barrels were dropped in favor of the Rochester QuadraJet as the factory was in an escalating horsepower war with the other manufactures in terms of advertising from the mid sixties to the early seventies. There are cable actuated two barrels that were used from 1969 through 1975 but not many (Cables were introduced in late 1969 as part of the reworked motor mount issues.

there's not much to show really. mine is just a rod. (1966)

here's a pic that I already have but it's not directly from the side. let me know if you need a better pic.

Allan, if you wouldn't mind, could you take a close up pictures of where the rod connects to the carb, the return spring area and another one which shows where the rod goes by the firewall? Thanks.

Thanks Allan.

I see that my setup is totally different. I will have to check it today when I come back from work but I do not think I have the place in firewall where the rod goes thru. But, I think that I do have the hole in the waterneck for the return spring.

I am just trying to determine what could be the remedy for my stiff accelerator pedal. I have replaced return spring and that helped but still it is not smooth. I think I will have to change the whole pedal assembly as it is crooked (sways to one side when pressed).
