I need to replace my choke cable. It appears to be about 12 feet long.
Where do you find a cable that long? The longest I can find is only 7
feet. Amphi white 67.--Raymo

<font face="comic sans ms">It's been a while, but when choke & hand throttle cables were out of stock @ GI I found "universal" cables at NAPA and a local non-franchised shop. The choke cable was for an implement (tractor or large truck?) Ended up replacing the knobs on both by running a die over the threads on the cable end & re-tapping Amphi's white knob & handle. They look (& function) perfectly. Also got some clear PVC tubing & slid it over the clutch cable housing so it would not be bothered by layingin a wet bilge.</font>

NAPA stores have a universal choke cable that is 12 feet long. They
also have a locking control that works for the hand throttle.

I just picked up a 15' choke cable at a local speedometer shop for
$15.50. I checked out the manufactures website www.buyersproducts.com
and saw that they had locking Tee handle controls in various lenghts.
May be good for the throttle.

Dave,

Drill and tap it and Just put a setscrew on the side and it would be very similar to how the arrestor isheldon the carburetor...

I dont understand how a chrome rosette is supposed to fit Hughs choke
cable. I am not on thier email list so first picture I have seen is on
Ebay. Hughs last post sure sounded like it was a direct replacement. So
whats up? Later Dave the Wave
