Q: Throttle Cable Bracket Codes for 1969
I just bought that bracket off eBay and think it may be the wrong one. It appears to have an F2 on it and someone told me he thinks the 1969 firebird 4 bbls have an F4 on em. Is there a difference for automatic or sticks?
A: The Throttle Cable Bracket fromE-Bay Auction is for a 1969 Firebird 2Bbl application. The “F2” designates 2bbl. The correct Bracket for a 1969 Firebird 4Bbl is 9797415 which is stamped with “F4” (for 4Bbl).
Since we’re on the subject, sometime in May of 1968, a new Intake Manifold and Throttle Cable Bracket for the 4Bbl Firebird came into production.
Intake manifold: 9794234
Throttle Cable Bracket: 9797415 (F4)
This Manifold was used on late model 1968 Firebirds, GTOs, Full Size models with 4bbl Carbs. Also used on all 1969 models with 4Bbl.
This set-up superseded the previous manifold/bracket… 1968 Firebird (1st Type up until May of 1968)
Intake Manifold: 9790140
Throttle Cable Bracket: 9792242
I believe that the Throttle Cable Bracket you’re looking for has been reproduced.
There is no difference in Throttle Cable Brackets for Automatic/Manual Trans.
