Kerry, what do you need to know? The Lokar clip is the flat one with the nylon spacer, just replaces the other bent clip. The clevis fork on the Lokar cable pins to the clip, if you have any other questions just let me know.
The clip for the Lokar doesn't have to move since the Lokar clevis will, tighten it so it points straight forward.
I did have to shorten the cable at the carb side, they make it extra long, you tighten the holding set screw and cut the extra off. I left a bit so I could swage on a stop sleeve as a back upbut haven't done it yet.
Looking at the cable as it comes thru the firewall to the pedal-yep,laying in the driver footwell- it should be coming out of the fitting centered (w/ no bending) as well as possible.Do anything you can to make this a straight run and the smoothness of the gas pedal movement will benefit.On my car, I actually drilled a new hole thru the firewall.Good luck
Mike the TP comes with two clips, the bent one is for the Ford EFI, or at least the older one FFR used to use and a straight clip which will work with the clevis on Lokar cables. Not sure what the Chevy one looks like so I can't really say.
On the latest EFI cable that ffr includes they changed tings and it comes with a white square plastic block. This will work with a slight mod, you use a sharp blade and make the inserted section round and then cut a groove so it fits over the cable
2001C5, it should be as straight as possible but a little is not a problem. The straighter it is the less wear you'll have where it comes out of it's sleeve.
It shouldn't take a lot of effort, what cable are you using? if it turns too tightly that will tighten it up.
The ss lokar cable is crap.I am really surprised they even sell them.My mkII came w/ an SS cable. I did a lot of adjusting, aiming, etc to the whole system and got it more driveable. Then ordered a black cable which w/ no other changes about halved the throttle effort.
