Need to figure out how to adjust the tension on this thing, I need more slack as I purchased a new bracket for mounting it (the old setup had the cable hose clamped in place, not an actual holding bracket.) Can someone give me a quick tutorial? I don't want to snap a tab or break something plastic that I can't fix. If I try to install the cable as-is, the end of it won't reach the mounting arm on the carb linkage. I need about 1/2 more play to get it to reach.

Also, the angle of the cable between the bracket (mounted onto back stud of the carb/intake) is a little tight between the firewall and the bracket. Will that pose any issues?

Black circle is where the bracket should clip on.

Yellow circle is the adjustment teeth

Red circle is the mechanism that needs to release to allow adjustment on the teeth. Likely pushes forward (across the teeth) to release and then push back to this position to lock in place.
