I've recently put an Edelbrock carb on a stock 4-barrel intake on my 69 351 Windsor, and have had a devil of a time with the throttle cable bracket, throttle return spring and the bracket to attach the kickdown spring.

The Edelbrock folks tell me I'll have to get the brackets off a 71 or newer 351 and they will work.

Anybody else had this experience?

I have a 69' FB equipped with the original 69' 351W (M-code). I am running with an Edelbrock 600 CFM carb mounted on an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold, and using my stock accelerator bracket. If it fits their manifold, and it fit the original 4V cast iron manifold on my car, I don't know why it wouldn't fit. I thought that they offered an alternative set-up through Edelbrock, but I ended up not having to use it.

Is the bracket from a 4V or a 2V engine? I think they are different.

HH......How about the universal, adjustable bracket that attaches to the rear driver's side carb stud ?????
That's what I'm using.......

I cannot post to the board right now, and have not been able to for a week
or so. I have no idea what's wrong it, must be something with my ISP.

I was trying the reply to a post in the classic forum from Harley titled
"69 throttle bracket" and cannot do it. Would you please post this for me,
Harley doesn't have a e-mail listed to send it direct. I have been through
this problem and maybe this will help him out.


I have the Edelbrock carb on my 69 351 and am using the stock bracket
for the throttle cable, I may have had to grind it slightly to make it go
all the way down, I just don't remember. I do remember having a problem
mounting the return spring to the bracket though, just don't remember what
the problem was! I solved this by making a small "L" shaped bracket, to
attach the return spring to, and mounting it with one of the intake bolts.
The spring connects to the bottom of the linkage and the spring bracket is
mounted to the intake bolt in line with the throttle cable bracket.
Come to think about it, I think the problem was when the throttle went
past about 3/4 the spring then "broke over" and pulled the throttle wide
open. Always check throttle operation for the first time with the engine

This is when it would be nice to have a digital camera.


Thanks for the great site!!
