Vic (OldSkool) on this site, is an Econoline guru as well as Duane (Econopoor). You can PM them to see if they can offer you some advice or pics because they are very busy. You can also use the Search tab at the top of thepage and type "throttle" to pull up some threads on the subject...

Here's a couple I found but there are many to look at...

Bracket at the pedal end or the carb end?

It's the bracket under the floor that connect the pedal to the throttle cable.
Thanks for any help.

Cool graphic that shows that despite pivoting from the heel just like a gvan, Ford has the linkage pushing into a bellcrank so that it pulls on a cable.... If you wanted to simplify this, 33c marine cables are designed to be pushed, so the bellcrank can be eliminated if you setup the arm on the carb to be pushed....
I didn't like the steep foot angle that the stock gvan pedal sets at, so I built an entire new setup that brings the pedal hinge up under the arch of my foot so I can also decelerate with my heel and my foot can rest on the pedal without pushing it.... I also built it to pull on a 33c cable instead of pushing...67 throttle cable in a 61 epup with 302 Thrott10

Economan, Vic Lafountaine (Old Skool), can help you out. He just got back from the hospital but I saw him respond to someone on another site.

He might take a little bit to respond but you can try PM'ing him or text him at 1-815-335-three zero three three with your request. He knows more about Econolines than most of us will ever forget.

His Email is vlafountaine@socal.rr.com
