Throttle Cable Fraying
for the Tip:
seems that whenever you replace your throttle cable, it becomes frayed
and hard to get thru the carburator after you remove it a couple of
times and soon it becomes impossible. This tip will extend the life of
How To Do It:
next time you are buying something from your local auto parts store,
pick up a small tube of 'Super Glue' they have setting near the cash
registers. Get the smallest size you can get because you are only going
to use a couple of drops. The liquid seems to work better than the gel.
Install the new cable and mark where you want to cut it off. It's very
important to cut it cleanly and not have any wild strands. You
can do this to more than one cable if you want a backup. Next, find a
piece of metal, plastic, wood, or nearly anything and drill a small
hole in it (large enough for the cable to fit in with ease). Drill the
hole about .750" deep. Squeeze the 'Super Glue' into the hole and then
dip all your cables in it.
