    Looking for the intake mounted bracket off a 350 Buick that has the two provisions for the throttle and kickdown cables. They only came on cars with a 4 barrel and a TH350 after 1975 I believe when the TH350 switched to a cable instead of a cable mounted to the pedal. Picture borrowed from joesregalproject. It's the big brown bracket next to the carb. I've tried ever kind of aftermarket and factory bracket you can think of. Right now I don't have the skills or the tools to make one. Any help is appreciated.

    Have you considered trying the 307 bracket that hangs on the quadrajet? Would this work?

    I don't believe that the speedometer cable runs to the throttle bracket and I know for certain that the T-350 has used a cable since it came out in 1969.

    Im guessing that MrSony is thinking about the throttle cable not speedometer cable

    I belive that bracket is for cars that had either the TH200 or the Th200r4. every bracket I've seen like that on the net and in every car has a tv cable trans instead of a kickdown like the TH350. The correct bracket, at least for my application needs to have the cable set about 1-2 inches back relative to the throttle cable since the th350 cable has a slot, and the nub on the carb linkage needs to float in the middle of the slot. I've tried using brackets like that, and you can't even fit the cable in there. it's in as far as it can go into the sheath but it needs more room.

    For the first couple years there was a cable yes, but it was attached to the pedal inside the car, not upto the carb. I don't know where I got the notion it had a rod, must've been thinking about a car with a C6 that I had.

    Sounds like a Buick 350 only bracket and given a 6 year span(among other factors) that doesn't help your chances of finding one. Comes down to being in the right place at the right time kind of deal.
