    I have a 1970 Barracuda 318,with the 727 Trans,and factory cruise control.
    It had a two Barrel carb,but I am looking to put an Edelbrock 1405 a top a 1969 340 intake,along wit the 4v Heads and cam upgrade.
    I do not need advise about the conversion other than how to connect the Throttle cable and kickdown Linkage.
    It will have Hipo exhaust a Column shifter.
    I just need to know how to connect the Cables and Trans linkage...and what parts I need..
    Thanks...Eric

    I have used Lokar’s throttle cable on both a manual trans car and auto trans car. It is a good set up, fully adjustable to ensure full throttle opening.

    I have also used their kick down kit, it is also a good kit.

    I modified the original linkage a little bit. Wanted to use the factory kick down arrangement. Had to bring the linkage a little higher off the manifold in order to have the throttle cable/kick down rod more inline for smoother operation. Hope this helps. 094.JPG
