Please show me how you ran your gas pedal throttle cable set up. Am wanting to use it in my 58gmc 1/2ton truck with gmc302 engine with Clifford Intake& Headers 4barrel carb. Were you able to keep stock pedal or something close to it?
Any advice would help-

Danny,
Take a look at the throttle linkage used for V-8's in TF trucks.
It uses the stock pedal and mounts on the firewall. You should be able to modify the throttle rod to actuate the 4 Bl. Various aftermarket suppliers have them for 6 to V-8 conversions, Truck Shop, Brothers, etc.
