Throttle cable end Installation Methods


Recommended Posts

Wayne from spectrum aviation mentioned the following arrangement (among many used) for making throttle cables. If you are making a solder joint I think they use silver solder for that, I heard its bit tricky to do. probably the easiest way to make it would be to buy 1.5mm inner cable with end already made and grinding it to required size using bench grinder. for housing use 5mm with nylon liner. the photo is pretty self explanatory for making the other end using electrical connector.


hope this helps

you should be able to get stainless steel thimbles from any boat shop (I got got them from Bias boating warehouse for 50 cent each). you rip the electrical connectors off to take the metal bit out and also check if its the right size (it should just be enough to pass two inner cables firmly,not too loose)
