throttle cable

Note the weird angle of my throttle cable.
when i hooked it up it was about 3/8'' to short, and as I pulled on the cable a bit I felt the pedal going down a little.
when we ran the car, there wasnt enough pedal to open the secondaries.
I can move the cable to the inside of the mounting point. (there is no other place!) it almost seems I may have to drill thru the bracket and mount it on the far inside.
Very weird!!!!
we have reaffirmed here why after market stuff sucks!!!
Thank you
Tk

Photos, TK? As a side note, the repro throttle cables have issues: grinding, hanging up, sticking, and incorrect length have all been reported. Run into this myself on a friend's '67.

I got a 36 inch lokar on a jegs brand bracket, had to modify the gas pedal slightly but one I cut the Lokar to fit it works perfectly, no bind and smooth operation. Also the throttle cable bracket is also adjustable
