Would anyone know the correct length for the accelerator cable?
I'm getting too many different types of lengths, as Amazon claimed to have the correct replacement, but it doesn't claimed if it's for carb. or throttle body type?

that one is 28 1/8" long apparently.

ATP Y211 is also listed.  It is 22 3/4".

I/m not sure exactly how they measure but I would guess the total length of the inside cable part.

You can measure from the end on the throttle body to the firewall and then measure from the inside firewall to the gas pedal end--then add the two measurements and see which it comes the closest to.  You can be a bit long, but you cannot be too short :D
