Default bracket for throttle cable / tv cable for 700r4

about to install a 700r4 in my 69, has 350 with edelbrock performer manifold, and edelbrock 1406 carb. is there one bracket that combines the throttle and tv cable in one bracket? Thinking maybe Edelbrock 8031 bracket, but this says kickdown cable, so not sure it'll function right with TV cable, know they have to be set up with all correct geometry to function properly.

if you could put some pics of what you have now in the Garage, we could tell more..
.
that is not the worst bracket to start with, its purty sturdy compared to a lot of others,,
and its is fairly easy to mod for length..
.
the 700 TV cable is different from a older Kickdown cable in length and the mount shape/ size,,
it looks like it comes with both size squares..
I have seen 6 different looking/length TV cables over the years,
depending on what the trans came out of originally,, truck, car, carb, TBI, TPI,
and that's just the 82-90ish models..
.
and I cant remember if/which throttle cable the 69 came with round or square mount..

I have kind of a cobbled up mess at the moment IMO. Throttle cable looks like it's in a bracket it belongs in, current kickdown cable is in some time of a bracket that just clamps down on the cable to hold it, probably works (I haven't driven it enough to know for sure, current turbo 350 doesn't shift right (probably only a vacuum issue if I were guessing)) but doesn't look right, but maybe it is, I'm not sure. 69 does have round cable. There's not much travel to accelerator, just doesn't feel like it's far from idle to WOT, haven't been able to check yet it pedal on the floor is truly WOT, but pedal only feels like it moves ... less than 2", maybe I'm just used to the feel of modern vehicles, haven't been behind the wheel of a classic since before I got old enough to be considered a classic. Here's some pics of current setup. Definatly a round cable by the way. After seeing this I sure hope the 8036 bracket I ordered will work with the round cable, looks like all the pieces that come with it have square holes.

its a work in progress, not a mess
id much rather be workin on that than the newer stuff..
.
yea looks like you can keep the throttle bracket.. yes I think that's the round cable mount..
be carefull its probly brittle too.. haven't seen that bracket in years, don't loose it...
most newer intakes don't have the mount holes tho..
.
put the carb end of the throttle cable in the big hole of the carb..
that will give you more pedal travel, and easyer/smoother feel..
use a 1/4 x 1-1/4 bolt with 2 small fender washers and a piece of rubber hose to fill the gap
in the big hole, use a nut to lock the rubber/washers together,
and a lock nut on the outside to loosely hold the cable on so it can turn...
.
the new bracket will be for the TV cable, it will bolt down to the intake,
where the kickdown bracket is now..
route the tv cable with big sweeping turns [no kinks]
bring it up on the driver side of the coil from below, not like the kickdown cable..
.
and yes the 8026 looks like what you need to attach the TV to the carb..
get it all mounted and then work out the VERY IMPORTANT adjustments for the TV ...
.

thanks a lot for info on moving the throttle cable to increase travel, I hadn't realized moving the mounting location would help with the travel. I'll DEFINITELY do that. So you think I should stick with the existing throttle cable bracket rather than trying to get throttle cable and TV cable on one bracket? I do like the way the existing throttle cable bracket mounts, I had never seen a performer manifold with the holes it's mounted to before myself.

yea, its just using a longer lever to do the same thing, more travel - more leverage..
.
nothing wrong with the throttle bracket like it is, if it works good..

Here is a video to help explain.
Video quality is not good, yet he explains it well.

Note that you must use a geometry correcting TV Cable Adapter attached to the carb.
* If you have a Rochester, don't need this.
* With Holley, need the one for Holley.
If Holley, it normally has an H stamped into the TV adjustor bracket.
* With your Edelbrock, you need the one for Edelbrock carbs.
Frequently they will have an E stamped into the TV adjustor bracket.
The EDL 8026 does not have E stamped on it, yet should be OK for Edelbrock.

EDL 8026 https://www.summitracing.com/parts/edl-8026?rrec=true
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-700203

I had to get a different bracket for the Holley Carb when I upgraded to the Holley carb on my truck. I could not use the one geometrically designed for the Edelbrock or it can cause trans failure for the TH700r4.

Here is an image of the prior bracket on my old Edelbrock 1406 carb.

If your bracket does not give you good horizontal cable lines to the connectors, you might look at this one. It attaches to carb studs and has some adjustments.
