This isn't directly a EFI question I know but relates in install of a EFI system so best place I felt for it.

factory accelerator 69 chevelle/el camino:

throttle cable or similar to throttle cable I'll need to use Pro Flo 4 XT system:
LOK-XTC-1000HT_xl.jpg

I'll need a longer than factory cable to reach around to right side of Pro Flo 4 Xt and so far I haven't found a cable long enough with connection to pedal like stock they all are similar to to the lokar cable. Is my solution going to be cutting off part of pedal and welding on something that lokar cable will connect to or is there another solution?

Looking at picture of accelerator I could cut end of pedal lever off, rotate it 90 degrees, weld it back on and then it'd work I think.

Check if Lokar has a cable that will work for you. They may have something you cut to the length you need. Check out the kickdown cables as well as throttle cables for different cable ends.

the original cable on the pedal end just had a ball, IIRC
it was about 1/4" and it sat in a plastic incert/keeper with a slit/cut in it for the cable,,
that keeper went into the hole on the pedal arm..
some had a slit/cut in the arm and not the keeper..
like this
or this

seems like it would still work even with the clevis style connector on the cable..

as said
some had a slit/cut in the arm and not the keeper..
and the plastic keeper was made onto the cable..
I have cut a slit in them and used them for other projects...
like this

heres a pic search
.
and then again??
maybe a heat and twist on the pedal arm is easy-er faster than cut and weld..

When I put the LT1 into the '84 El Camino, I got throttle cable for a '94 Caprice/Roadmaster, because that was the donor. The pedal end of the cable fit the old pedal, and sheath matched the hole in the firewall. Cable was kinda long for my throttle hookup on the left side of the intake. It would probably reach the right side, if that's why you're looking for a longer cable.
