72 mustang, kickdown connection point on 1483 adapter

kickdown connection point on 1483 adapter

--'72 fback, 302, Edelbrock 4 barrel #1406, Edelbrock performer 289 intake, w/ kickdown rod.--
Carb is in place, with 1" thick spacer.
I have a #1483 adapter on the carb.
I have a #1490 throttle bracket adapter installed on the manifold under the 302 OEM throttle cable bracket.
After a bit of bending the OEM throttle cable bracket, the throttle cable is now aligned and connected to the 1483 adapter.
My kick down lever ends right beside the bottom connection point on the 1483 adapter.
1) It's hard not to think the kickdown gets connected at this point also and they function together. Yes/no?

2) NEXT… If I leave the kickdown unhooked, the carb throttle movement (by hand) is “X” distance.
After connecting the kickdown to the bottom of the 1483 adapter and the carburetor, the overall throttle movement / range is half the “X distance.
So, when kickdown is attached at this 'bottom point', it limits the distance I can physically move the throttle.
I have a feeling the throttle needs that full range of motion I get when the kickdown is NOT hooked up.
AND I also get he feeling the kickdown DOES NOT connect at this point.
Anyone clearly understand my concerns just by reading this?
Got any answers?
PICs to be posted tonight (hopefully).
