I've got twin SUs on my 13/60. Last year I modified the engine end of the throttle linkage and installed a new but shortened (by necessity) cable. I couldn't use the Spit cable as it doesn't have the long drop to the pedal on the inside end. The metal end on my cable has now broken from the cable sheaf at the engine bracket. It is working now courtesy of duct tape. I was never completely satisfied with that connection.
So, my question is can I use a Spit pedal assembly and a Spit cable. If so, I could use a locally available cable without modification.

You wouldn't be the first to do so, adapting the pedal from a 1971 or later Spitfire. But if it's only the cable right now that's troubling you, perhaps you could take what you have -- and some measurements -- to a good bicycle shop and see what they could make up for you. What you'd get from them is probably going to be better than any modern (or perhaps even NOS) cable you could buy from a Triumph spares vendor.

I made a new pedal that ended up looking like the spitfire one by pure coincidence, because form follows function. Changing the peddle was VERY much the right thing to do as the original Herald set up is terrible engineering

Thanks Andy and Iain. I'll try the bike cable route. And Iain, thanks for the pictures. Tom
