Would any of you folks know the length of a 4bl. throttle cable vs. a 2bl cable?
I am working on a 74 Grand Am, some where along the line the original throttle cable was replaced with an after market cable which is way to long and looks like h.s.  Got a line on a cable but the guy is not sure if the cable he has is for a 4bl or a 2bl set up.....

why not measure what length cable casing you need.. from the fire wall to the bracket..  plus half an inch on each end..   some slack so the engine can rock without breaking the cable casing..


then measure from the casing to the throttle lever mounting..  and inside about an inch or so..

this will give you a rough idea..

the 4 barrel versions were longer. from the engine end mounting to carb linkage end..

i forgot to post that the first cable seems to be for the Nova/omega/ventura/apollo.

i have been away from the computer all day out with friends.. i will try to get back and sort this if you need more info.. i just copied and pasted then dashed.. i so rarely get out and about ..

That is a great chart that you posted Wayne, even thou it does not post a length for 1974, it is the same cable 73-75.  So 20 1/2" for a 2bl 21 1/2" for the 4bl. That cable is the same for LeMans, A Body GTO (73), and Grand Am. So problem solved, my guy also had several cables in the correct length.
