Lokar Throttle Valve Cable Bracket











#8LB. Stainless bracket mounts to rear of Holley, Edelbrock, AFB, Quadrajet, Demon, and In-Line Dual Quads. Stainless bracket and GM designed dual stainless springs are used to mount Lokar’s Throttle Cable and Kickdown assemblies. Design provides improved clearance on Edelbrock carburetors. Design includes tension screw to prevent bracket from movement under extreme pressure on a kickdown cable, such as with a 700-R4 transmission. Cost $33.00


Tech Note: #8LB mounts Lokar Throttle Cables and Kickdowns for a nice clean setup. Be sure when installing your Spring Return Kit and Throttle Cable that your throttle pedal bottoms out at full throttle to prevent undue stress on the throttle shaft and other components.

Lokar Throttle Valve and Passing Gear Cables














#89. Lokar’s “U-Cut-to-Fit” Braided Stainless Kick-down Cable is designed with a specially extruded liner for extended life of the cable – not to be confused with ordinary brake hose. Kick-down features aluminum fittings with ferrule to eliminate frayed cable ends. Kick-downs are adaptable for all types of manifolds including tunnel ram, blower manifolds and Weber induction systems. Mount our kick-down with our Stainless Steel Carburetor Bracket and Return Springs (sold separately). All units are available in black housing upon special request. Complete instructions included in kit. Cost $85.00

Notice the Holley adapter on the carburetor and the helper return spring on the throttle valve lever. Press F11 for a better view. On a stock AOD the correct pressure adjustment usually is minimum throttle valve cable pull at minimum throttle opening (idle) and on an AOD with a Shift Kit installed the correct setting usually is full cable pull at full throttle.

Lokar 700R4 / 200-4R Throttle Valve Cable Instructions

#1. The throttle valve cable controls transmission pressure. Adjusting this cable is the most important step when installing a 700R4, 4L60 or 200-4R transmission.

#2. The final step is to adjust the throttle valve cable. The cable must be adjusted so it is pulled fully out at wide-open throttle. To make sure disconnect the cable, hold the throttle wide open with your left hand, pull the cable fully out with your right hand and see if the cable end lines up with the button on the throttle lever. The cable should also be pulled out 3/8 to 1/2 of an inch at idle.

#3. Do not attempt to adjust the shift timing with the throttle valve cable. The shift timing is controlled by the governor springs and weights. For higher shift points at wide-open throttle install lighter springs. For lower shift points at wide-open throttle install stronger springs. After the cable is adjusted the approximate shift points should be 15 to 18, 25 to 30 and 40 to 50 MPH at very light throttle depending on tire size and axle ratio. Light throttle shift points are measured in MPH and full throttle shift points are measured at what RPM. The full throttle 1-2 shift will usually be at a higher RPM than the 2-3 shift. The governor will work with only 1 spring or 2 springs. You can remove one spring to raise the full throttle shift points.
