I have a Bickel chassis car that uses a very small cable to connect the throttle pedal to the carb linkage. I want to install an enhancer but I'm not real sure how to do it. The distance between the back of the intake where the linkage connects to the cable and the pedal is real short. I'm not real sure a throttle stop is short enough to fit.
Let me know if you have accomplished this and post some pictures if you have.
On door cars, it is common to turn the carb around and have the cable go all the way around the front to put the enhancer on the other side.
this is a dual carb setup. Acually it is a dual throttle body set up. I think I may be able to install the throttle stop between the 2 throttle bodies. Thanks for your reply.
That’s what I was going to ask. Can you hook up to the front carb?

i really need to be more clear.
This is a 737 5 inch bore space engine. It has a CFE intake that has 2 throttle bodies on it. The linkage comes down on the left side of the intake at the rear close to the fire wall. Bickel installed the very short cable through the fire wall that connects the pedal to the linkage. I'm hoping a Biondo throttle stop will fit in there but I'm not sure it will.
Anybody have any experience with my situation?
Originally I had a rod off the throttle pedal to an air cylinder attached to the linkage. I wanted to get away from the throttle rod and back to a cable system so I had to reconfigure the air cylinder so that when I hit the bump button, my throttle pedal could be at the floor and the engine still at an idle.
This is the system I fabricated. It took a little bit to figure out exactly how to get it set up but it works perfectly.
CO2 is always going to the cylinder to keep it retracted. Cylinder is connected to 1 bellcrank at the back which is controlled by the throttle cable at the bottom. When the CO2 is dumped, spring pressure pulls the butterflies closed. There is linkage on the other side joining the toilets together. When CO2 is put back into the cylinder, it snaps back into the retracted position and pulls both toilets back to WOT.
The hardest part was figuring out where to connect everything to get it to work. I was thinking of putting the air cylinder in place of the vertical rod but there just wasn't enough room.

How have you got the bell crank connected?
There are heim joints screwed onto the studs for the toilet mounting. One on both sides. There's a shaft that runs through them with splines on both ends for the bellcrank arms to slid onto. Stops on one side to keep the shaft in place.
I doubt that you have room under your dash, but you can always put the throttle stop on the other end of the cable.
I don't have a picture but with my hat I put my SLE between the hat linkage and a bellcrank and brought the cable around from the front.
