Control cable contact info
« on: March 20, 2019, 03:43:57 AM »
Does anyone have contact info for control cable that makes the flexible morse type cables? I need a new throttle cable and tried google, but got nothing but a bunch of wrong places with the same name

Yeah, I am from the south--any further south and I would have been a bloody penguin.

Those are morse style cable clips. I just ordered a new cable from these guys at control cable. Very helpful, knew exactly what I was asking for when I called them

Those are quick disconnects  for areas that get taken off frequently, but for areas that don't get removed often then these are the preferred clamps as there are no little pokies sticking out

For a second I thought that was a micrometer you are using to hold the lever on the right.
Just keep the same amount of stuff on the right
as there is on the left. Seeing straight ahead is highly overrated....

No , I only use a Mic when the position has to be within a couple of thou. otherwise a c-clamp works close enough
