Gas Pedal / Accelerator Cable Mounting 1969-1982

This question just came in to us via email…

Q: “In viewing your diagram for the pedal assembly I can’t figure the purpose of the metal plate that bolts over the accelerator arm itself. I know the bottom part holds the pivoting part in place but what is the purpose of the extended part with the three holes? -BD”

A: The purpose of the bracket extended part is for the kick down switch on cars that came with this switch.
