Throttle cable hook up pics?
« on: September 23, 2011, 05:17:26 PM »
About 9 months ago I tore down a 1976 trihull with a chevy 350 / jet drive. Now that it is going back together, I can't remember how the throttle cable was hooked up to the carb (Rochester quad) or the foot pedal. I have a new throttle cable going in and kind of starting over. The cable connected from the transom side. Looking for pics  if anyone has anything similar.

Are there "standard" cable brackets or is it a figure it out as you go thing.
Am I making any sense?

Also, one end of the cable has a longer "shaft" than the other end. Does it matter which end goes where?

Do you have a hand throttle or a foot throttle?

Post some pics of the cable, the throttle assembly and the parts you have for a mount at the carb.  With the pics we should be able to get you pointed in the right direction.

Email me the pics, irrebel@cox.net, or use photobucket, which is what I'm gonna do with them anyway.

best pic i have right now, plate gets sandwiched between carb and intake.  you'll need a new gasket for the carb to plate, but u can silicone between plate and intake.  clip goes onto plate, cable gets clipped in.  ball gets mounted to carb throttle, quick disconnect gets threaded onto cable, adjust accordingly.  secure with lock nut.    enjoy boating.

Thanks for the help guys. I do have the 36174 bracket, i just dont see anywhere in-line from the carb to where it will go. I must have another piece lying around somewhere.

Sorry about that, completely missed the email somehow.




In this one, the bracket laying on the floor, yeah gets bolted to a cable plate that mounts under the carburetor. But it doesn't look like that engine ever had that set up. The brackets on your engine, above, look to me like a traditional throttle linkage/kickdown set up from a car or truck. The third link KA0tyk posted is what that other bracket bolts to, either above or below the plate depending on push or pull setup. The bracket on the cable there must be for on your throttle pedal.
