    Default Throttle Bracket with Morse Cable

    I bought a billet throttle bracket from Jegs and the throttle cable is too far forward by 1.5 inches even when the cable holder is slid all of the way back. What gives? The curse of the new BG Carb! What do you guys use for a throttle bracket when hooking up to a Morse cable? Below is the type of bracket I tried and must return.

    Possibly because your cable has more stroke than that bracket is built for.

    I like the look of the "CARB PLATE-DOM SIDE MOUNT". Does a dominator have the same bolt spacing as my Marine Demon 650?

    All you need is a basic Holley std carb side plate setup.

    My original set-up came with that little cable bracket with the six holes. I'm worried that the setback on the side mount is not far enough back because it didn't work on the Jeg's one of similar style. Anyone have one they can measure? What's the distance from the rear carb to the end of the side mount bracket measuring straight back (not diagonal)?

    Rivernut,

    Using a tape measure so not precise but close.

    Distance from carb hole center to first hole of the 8 hole pattern for the angle bracket is 3 1/4". Straight front to rear measurement plane.

    Distance of the 8 hole pattern is 1 1/4".

    You can bolt the angle bracket on either direction and it only uses 6 of the 8 holes. It can also be bolted on facing either direction.

    You can also swap the plate end to end for push or pull application on the cable.

    All this gives you a pretty wide selection of position for cable anchoring.

    Std 33C Cable travel max is around 3 1/2". Most throttle setups don't use quite all of that.

    I've never seen a std holley or std demon these don't work on.

    The plate for the Dominator 4500 is different as is the carb base bolt spacing.

    Hope some of that helps.

    Just looking at the pic at the top (jegs) the cable mount location appears much closer to the carb std than the 33C cable setup I've described above. What you have looks like a stock OEM style cable plate as in GM, Ford, or Mopar. Just guessing.

    Yep, unless some body put a cable in that thing with more than 3 1/2 stroke

    This obviously isnt a regular carb, it has dual feed bowls , standard holley pattern. Had to grind this piss out of this bracket. Not much room there to sqeeze a bracket through but I made it. Hope it doesnt break as its not real wide up in there,lol.

    I made that same bracket work with a Morse Cable. I drilled a proper sized hole right through the front block where it says "jegs" below the springs with a drill press, drill for a set screw to hold the cable where the other brackets clamp down, take end of cable apart, insert through new hole, reassemble with springs and walla, works perfect for me. I cut the other end off when I was done cause it looked funky hanging out there. Worked perfect with the built in adjustments on the bracket and cable combined. Looks great.

    Apparently the car version of a Morse cable set-up is a different length than the marine version. I got the marine one from Eddie Marine. Big thumbs upfor the guy at Eddie Marine helping me with my tiny purchase. It was about half the price of the Jeg's one and it fit with a little grinding. The clearence issue was with my Marine Demon carb. The front leg of it interfered with the 50cc pump lever. That day I also removed the choke assembly because it was pissing me off the way it bound, could not be opened fully and the plate link rod hit the air cleaner base...WTF. Works and looks great now. You guys are the best! Thanks for the help with my new mixer. Now if I could get it to idle consistently at 1,000 rpm's instead of 1,200-1,500 rpm's...
