Throttle cable length?

I’m having trouble with my throttle cable. Seems to be too long? I have a 70 chevelle coupe 350 with a demon 625 carb. I purchased a gm 3973862 cable. It sticks out a good 3 inches through gas pedal. Like there’s slack in the cables and when I give it gas, it seems the pedal is too close to the floor bc the cable isn’t pulling back on the gas pedal? Any help would be appreciated. I’ll try to add pics today .

I wanted to ask if there were different length cables? From what I read, I purchased the correct one?

I took some pics. It just seems a bit too long. It looks correct from rubber grommet to firewall but cable inside seems to long.

Re: Throttle cable length?

There are several lengths. Take yours out and measure it from the ball stud to the other end. Get the length youy need.
Here are OPGI's lengths:
