Which manual choke cable for holley 4150...

Online I saw holleys manual choke cable for 24 bucks, then I found a universal one on amazon....only difference is Amazon will be here tomorrow, Holley will take few days....does it matter Which one?? Its for holley 4150 model, I'll get the bracket or make one if I need to mount cable. Or can I just go to oreillys and get universal. They have one for edelbrock and Dorman. Just being choke cable does it matter Which will work??

They’ll both work but the only difference is quality of material. The Holley one is stronger.
The choice depends on how rough you are with a cable.
You don’t need to make a mount for the cable on the carb. Holley has them.
Is your Holley an original manual choke carb?
Pic would be nice.

Normally it’s set up opposite. Pcv valve on drivers, breather on back of passenger side. It’ll work either way.
That glass fuel filter can be dangerous. They’re known to break and start big engine fires.
Easy to hook up choke. Don’t over tighten the clamp the cable slides thru.
What air cleaner you got?

I also see white color on your fuel line connections at the carb. If it’s Teflon tape you shouldn’t use it there. The seal isn’t on the thread, it’s on the flare at the end of the tube.

I’d play with the angle of the fuel hard line and try to get it so the soft line doesn’t have a kink in it after the filter.

Re: Which manual choke cable for holley 4150...

It came like that with the Teflon tape on threads.....I plan to run better secure fuel line, would steel braided be the best? Or what is best recommended?? This is just a test run, fire up completing install of engine, then make all better afterwards. I want to organize plug wires better, install better wire for temp sensor, and wires going to alternator, there's extra plug ins I won't need guess I could cut them out???, what's the best simple way to do that? My accelerator pedal needs to be adjusted somehow, there's no slack at the bracket connected to carb, so i assume at the foot pedal adjust somehow????
As far as breather just the basic round classic breather on top of carb....as far as I know that will fit.

Re: Which manual choke cable for holley 4150...

That fuel line you have works best on the carb. Yours just needs some tweaking.
Here’s an idea for a nice bracket for your linkage. They have better ones than this example.
Look on Holley.com.
When you remove the Teflon and if you still have leaks just ask and we’ll help fix it.
You need to be careful removing wires. When in doubt ask what they’re for.
