On reviewing my post, I realized I wasn't being completely accurate

If you are changing holes at the pedestal, moving the cable CLOSER to the pivot will increase the lever travel from idle to full throttle. (what you want)

If you are changing holes at the engine, moving the cable AWAY from the pivot will increase the lever travel from idle to full throttle. (what you want)

Careful examination of the levers should reveal, by wear patterns where the cable really was attached.

Sorry about that. Good luck, and let us know how things work out.
