Re: Replacing the throttle cable.
They are kind of a pain to build. depending on the end that goes in the slide.
What ever end YOU MUST SOLDER IT!!!. for a regular sleeve type end feed thur everything and then the carb top etc. clean to remove any oil then spread the little bit of wire that pokes out, flux it and solder. you dont want the motor to swallow anything.
Or the easy way send it to TerryCable in Hesperia CA, they are very resonable.
Over the years they have made a lot of cables for me! Shorter or longer just tell em.
