Default Throttle/mixture cable bracket

I have a IO-360 cold air induction with horizontal fuel servo and I am looking for brackets to support the appropriate cables. Where can I get the brackets ?

Thanks

Default bracket

I built mine from mild steel. Using Vans stock cables, I had to use extensions from ACS but I wanted the stock cables as they are less $ and quicker to order and replace in the future. The extensions caused the nut to be located farther aft and the bracket attaches to the rear of the Superior sump. The 4 pipe Vetterman Exhaust allows me to run my mixture underneath and do away with the bellcrank. The weight of the bracket and washers is less than the weight of Vans throttle and mixture bellcrank.

You need the bellcrank kit, or direct connection? I have a bellcrank kit I'm not using and would sell. Let me know.

Same setup on my 9A, I had to fabricate the brackets for throttle and mixture from mild steel and hung them on the aft corners of the sump.

I bought the ones from Vans and cut it up to work. I have a Superior XP IO-360 with cold induction with horizontal intake.

I called Van's this morning and asked them about the brackets I need to use for the throttle and mixture cable on my IO-360 from Superior with cold air induction and horizontal fuel servo (silverhawk).
The person from tech. support at Van told me he had never seen a Superior engine with cold air induction and therefore could not help me. He suggested I go to this website and try to find someone whom has installed this engine...
Can anyone help

Yep, you're on your own from here on out. This engine setup is difinitely not in Van's FWF packages. I think I found the following link at Airflow Performance's website. It does have some Silverhawk systems that might help you with design ideas. http://n87dx.com/2012/08/06/throttle...-carousel-2242

Here's what I did on mine, IO360 with Superior cold-air horizontal, Bendix injection and Vetterman crossover, on a 9A.

This is the throttle cable bracket, I fabbed this from a piece of 8" C-Purlin I had laying around, it is attached at the right aft corner of the sump. You can't see it from the angle of the photo, but the top portion of this bracket is custom-shaped to fit the cast sump, to prevent it from rotating around the shaft of the bolt and putting the cable in a bind.



Here is the throttle arm connection.



I don't have this done for the mixture yet, but the procedure will be the same, the cable lays out nicely for a bracket to attach at the left aft corner of the sump.
