Question: Choke cable to choke lever on Weber/Edelbrock 4bbl carb

The previous owner of my 110 V8 installed a Weber/Edelbrock intake manifold and carb kit from RPI. He did not, however, install the choke cable. The Edelbrock instructions for connecting the choke cable to the lever are not very explicit, and I have dug through the internet in search of the "preferred method" of attachment. The cable has been run from the steering column through the bulkhead and around to the cable bracket on the carb, but I have not attached the cable to the choke lever itself. This is where I am in need of some terminal guidance.

Do any of you have the Weber/Edelbrock setup? If so, could you please let me know how you attached the cable to the choke lever? I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions and/or pics of how anyone has done this.

Do you have a photo showing the problem? Usually they are pretty simple, a clamp to hold the cable housing and a "cable stop" of some kind to hold the inner part. If there is just a hole in the lever then you may need to buy something like this:

Yes, you may be missing the cable clamp that goes on the lever. I don't have a good picture of the cable actually attached to the carb on my engine but maybe these will help.

Thank you, Ren. That part would definitely work. Now I just need to find one.

Mine edlebrock carb came with an electric choke, check to see if you have one before you hook up the manual.

I definitely do not have an electric choke. That said, does the electric choke work well?

Almost every auto parts store in the US has a section where they sell little repair parts like this. One common brand is "HELP", they have a whole section of card-packed small items like this.

here is a nice one on ebay. if you can't find one where you are, for some reason, we can send you one from here.

It seems to work great, I have not driven my car much (as for right now I do not drive my LRs during winter, too much salt here in IL), but while starting it in the garage this winter during very cold days, I have had no issues and from monitoring it while running it looks to work great.

I found the HELP brand cable stops on websites like NAPA and Autozone, but for some reason, I was unable to add them to my cart. I'll ask the local Landy mechanic if he knows where I can snag a few before I reachback to CONUS. Thanks again for the help. Pics of my carb below:
