hello guys,
I working some bugs out of my recently finished 70 nova and one of the problems I have is the engine wouldn't make power past 3500 rpms. after some checking I found that the front throttle blades on the holley carb were not opening even 1/2 way. I put a new factory appearing throttle cable on the car and the one I thought was correct (repo) is 21 inches long from the end to end. im trying to figure out which one I need to make this right. I would like to keep the factory appearing cable. It has an original correct 1970 lt1 holley carb with a repo bracket that holds the cable at the rubber bushing. my pedal is only about an inch from the carpet with this cable. the cable is without a doubt too long at 21 inches. any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

the part number for that cable listed in the gm parts description is stated as second design and shows a measurement of 20 5/16 over all length. whats weird is the first design cable listed for 70-72 2 barrel and 70 4 barrel carb is 18 7/8 over all length. I have a 21 o.l cable on there now.. wondering if 11/16 is going to make the difference or should I get the first design. ugh!
