    you know the piece that connects to the carb.(spring loaded telescoping connector that bolts to the manifold) it is bent(compressed ) if connected and binds the accelerator 1/4ish of travel at the pedal(the throttle on the carb moves freely , the cable worked flawless on the old carb

    how would I go about jerry rigging it (the cable connector end /spring part )

    the connector that connects the cable to the carb throttle with the spring ,is too long and kinks/bends to an angle ,the telescoping spring tensioner/ carb connecter thing ?

    and the first 1/4 inch of acceleration (foot pedal push) is stiff then it acts normal (take the cable off ,the throttle on the carb moves freely)

    the end just causes a bind then it works smoothly,so I do not know what to do in the first place baffled ?

    Jim, I have a question and can not get any straight answers .

    I got a new carb.( carter yf ) and ran into a slight issue ,

    this new carb. is a little bit taller than the old one, so the throttle/ accelerator cables is about half an inch too long ( just stretched?, or the plastic ball connector/ tensioner is too long) do I get a new cable,(original or ?) or modify this one?

    I don't think it is too big of a problem. I put one on Dad's truck when I was having problems that turned out to be something else, although I don't remember what it was. But, it didn't make any difference so I left it on. And when I moved the engine to Rusty I moved the FPR over as well. However, I know a lot of people don't run them and don't seem to have any problems.
