There is some variance in connections car to car, but they all do the same thing. At the carb. or throttle plate on the motor, the cable goes over a half round guide and the end slides into a round slot. Rotate the guide to full throttle and slide the end out of the slot. The cable goes through the firewall and should have a screw holding it in place. Inside on the gas pedal at the top will either be another end like the throttle end or may be a loop over a pin. May have a cotter pin or clip holding it. Remove and pull out through the firewall. To help get the new one in tie a string to the end of the old one and reattach it to the new one. Use the string to pull and guide the new one in. Reattach the ends and done.
