1972 Cobra Jet, C6, edel premiere carb, throttle cable and kickdown Problems

Hey everyone. I have been surfing posts for some time now and gathering some very helpful information for my 1972 Ranchero 500, 351 Cobra Jet, C6 trans.

However im running into some issues with the new edelbrock premiere carb. I used the edelbrock kickdown adapter (1483) and it has offset the throttle cable bracket about an inch to the linkage.

I also have edelbrocks 1493 but cannot figure out how the thing mounts. Does anybody have a similar setup with advice or pictures?

Ive found the video floating around of the fella who fabricated a bracket for the throttle cable. Just figured there would be someone out there selling this part

Secondly, I plan on using the Lokar kickdown cable, with the lokar adapter. Would using this settup with the Lokar throttle cable assembly solve the problem I am having.

Any help would be great
