    There are two different /6 throttle cables.
    The 225 1-bbl and the 225 2-bbl versions.

    I can’t recall which one is longer. One version is just too long to work. The other version is longer than it needs to be, but will still work fine in either a 318 2-bbl or 318 4-bbl applications.

    I was thinking that – but couldn’t recall.
    The /6 2-bbl cable is just way too long to work.
    The /6 1-bbl cable has worked for others in the past for a V8. It is a bit too long but enough that it works fine.

    If you already have the replacement cable, I guess it doesn’t matter at this point.

    If your old cable moves freely inside of its sleeve and not frayed, it might be something that someone else might give you $5 for . . . maybe.

    Lokar throttle and kick-down on my 360/727/A body. Love em.

    I have a good used V8 F body throttle cable. $15 plus shipping.

    Jim, I'm guessing you meant to say:

    I understood the bracket was different for the 4bbl, not the cable?
    Only noticed 3 lengths...slant, super six slant and V8.

    The 4-bbl FMJ throttle cables are about 1 inch longer than the 2-bbl version – so there are four different length (FMJ) cables:
    /6 1-bbl
    /6 2-bbl (the longest)
    318/360 2-bbl (the shortest)
    318/360 4-bbl

    The 4-bbl throttle brackets (the part that bolts to intake) are bent differently from factory – but the 2-bbl version can be used as-is or bent slightly to work fine (which is what most people do).
