Control coil bracket for throttle cable?

Today I removed my carburetor for repair and one question comes in my mind. Is there an additional bracket necessary to fix the throttle control cable nearby the carburetor / motor mount ?

Need exact year, to be specific, I'd spin the cable down in the bracket.

On a 55 I don't think there is a extra bracket control etc. What might be the actual challenge is the throttle arm height. [See pic] Research that.BEST

I just looked at my 56 and the cable appears to be closer to the pan on mine. The carb arm looks the same height as yours. I would flip the cable in the bracket and see how that looks.

Good approach, I will test as soon the carburetor is back from repair (new throttle shaft, bushings and plate etc.). Thank you...
