I put Rodneys kick down cable on my 86 GT. There is this clip that is apparently for mounting it somewhere. Danged if I can find a bolt or place to mount it it that makes sense. Anyone know or got a picture of it?

Im thinking Rodneys cable may be longer than stock.

If it is to long try getting a bend in it before you try to put the cable into the holder, not a sharp bend by any means bet a small bend then once you get the end of the cable in allow the bend to find it's own natural bend after its locked in.

My manual is in the Fiero so no pictures from me anyway.

Have fun.

I have it in the end at the throttle and at the tranny, of course. However, there is this clip, midstream of the cable, that slides back and forth, on the cable, that suggest it attaches to a bolt somewhere, but danged if I can see where. I searched for a pic, but really couldn't find one. I figured a pic would clear it up. The cable works, I just want it connected and tucked away properly.

My cable is exactly the same length as OEM. But I do not have a picture of where that clip attaches. But it is in the same location as the OEM GM cable.

Isn't there a little plastic sleeve which snaps into a little clip on (or by) the thermostat neck?

Its 7AM and I'm at the office but when I get home I can snap a pic if the issue isn't cleared up by then.

I recently replaced my kick-down cable (Rodney) when I replaced my auto tyranny with a 4T60. The tab on the knockdown cable is secured by the bolts that secure the cruise control motor, the right bolt. In my case, I had to remove the tit on the tab.

Hope this helps? I have a photo but have yet to figure out how to send photos using a Kindle Fire HD!

You are correct. One bolt at the cruise control bracket, and a clip at the thermostat housing. Those are the only two attachment points in the midsection of the kickdown cable.

I hope you weren't taking that personal. It was just a observation because there seemed to be so much slack. I love your products. I've got all your ball joints, tie rod ends etc. No complaints here.

Thanks, I did the same swap and I have the cable clipped at the thermostat housing, but not near the cruise control. I've had other issues and just got the car towed home tonight. I'll look at it Saturday.
