I am converting my 93' LTD to a carb setup.. and i need Throttle position sensor for the automatic transmission to work properly! Does anyone know of a company who makes a kit to mount a TPS to a 650 baseplate?

Here's how Bauman says to add one to a carburetor so that you can use their electronic transmission controller:

I'd show you a picture of my fabbed one but its apart for the engine rebuild. I incorporated a bicycle brake cable. Holley has one I may use with a new carb.

Just don't use home depot brackets like the Bauman pics.

FWIW Accufab makes a 4V Holley pattern throttle body. I know there are others as well.
