Would it be possible for someone to post a picture of the cable linkage setup on a V8 Maverick?
I am continuing to have issues and the setup on the Maverick is just binding up with the mechanical secondaries. I don't think this a a stock Maverick and I'd like to know what a stock one actually looks like.
Thanks for you help.
Wow! That is definitely screwed up! The only thing right is the bracket it mounts to. Do a search for throttle cable. I'm sure there are some pics on here what it is suppose to look like. If not I'll post one in a little while. I'm suppose to be working on a car right now. :rolleyes:
That cable is way too short! With the bends at each end it's no wonder it binds. I would get a Locar cable for it. That is what I'm doing when the time comes.
As per Mr Miller the cable is way to short . You will need to replace the cable with a longer one . You should have a gentle " S " bend Not a tight " Z " bend . As for the cable as I remember the stock Mav cable had a 2 bolt mounting flange to the fire wall and not just 1 bolt.
Looks like there is a bolt and washer in the hole the cable should run out of. For sure, that's not a maverick cable. Way too short. Even a six cylinder cable would be better there with it's additional length....
Here's what the factory cable looks like at the carb
Thanks guys and special thanks to Ray for the picture.
I think the throttle (inside the car) is stock, so I may just get a stock one from AutoKrafters...............I think they call out a 20" cable as I don't want to drill any more holes in the firewall...................an it may be simple to install on the throttle.........................we will see.
