and the bracket for the throttle cable doesn't have another square hole. but the engine and carb are from a 79 camaro, but not sure how much the PO changed and swapped over as far as bracketry. thank you for the answers, I'll post back what I find, all that I googled said it would be carb mounted nothing about it mounting on the petal.

On my two cars, there is a separate bracket that mounts at the back of the intake manifold that has a round hole to help secure the metal tube that extends from the brake booster vacuum hose. They also have the extra square hole that would secure the kick-down cable; although that is only being utilized on the '77 Monte. I notice that bracket is missing in your photos.

It seems wery few has ever heard of a gas pedal mounted kickdown. Thats why the cable is hard to find. Hope you find the solution.

ok looked at the firewall and gas petal no extra holes on the fire wall and only the one slit for the throttle cable. so I'm going with it has to go to the carb, so I might have to get a new cable. does anyone have a decent picture of the bracket like Mcarlo77 described for the kick down and where it bolts like is it one or more bolts. I have been through all my pictures and have not come across any bracket that looks like what he described

Just for reference, here are two pics:

1) Shows where the throttle cable passes thru the firewall (upper grommet) and the kick-down cable (lower grommet) on my '75 Laguna.  

2) Showing the additional bracket needed for connecting to carb. This is off a Qjet manifold from the '75 Laguna donor car. I don't believe the bracket is the same as used on 2 bbl carbs.

I am sure that my 76 has that same bracket for the kickdown cable as pictured above, but I just can't find it right now. It is probably in the scrap heap at the machinist.

But here is a pic of my original throttle cable bracket. The add-on piece is for the cruise control cable.

Here is a bracket that I am thinking about using. I don't know what it is off of.

This is a pic of my 1977 305 bracket. Kickdown cable on top.

This is the bracket I am using on my new engine. I'm using an aftermarket throttle cable and I have my kickdown cable installed in the bracket but not hooked up on the carb.
