Hello all,

I have purchased a new choke cable from Moss UK and while it's lovely it doesn't have the removable pull knob that the original had. While removing the original is relatively straightforward, as I can pull out the inner cable, undo the bezel on the cockpit side of the dash then withdraw the outer cable into the footwell, fitting the new cable is going to be a real challenge! I can undo the locknut which screws onto the back of the dash, slide the new cable into the hole in the dash, slip on the lock nut, put the cables through the firewall and get the cables to the fast-idle cam and the metering unit - BUT - how am I going to tighten up the lock nut on the back of the dash?!! Do I have to take the dash apart to do it? Any tips from others who have done the change over would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Tim

Can't you thread the nut until it contacts the back of the dash and then use the bezel to tighten things up ?

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the suggestion it got me thinking. I can thread the new cable assembly through the dash then use a box / tube spanner and thread it over the cables (with the nut in it) then screw the nut onto the thread to the point where I can then screw on the bezel and tighten both up against each other. I bet something will be in the way but I'll have a go later this week.

Thanks again for getting me thinking and wish me luck.

Cheers,

Tim
