I've been thinking about this too. My new cable feels like crap in comparison to a proper stainless cable and lined housing.

In reply to # 3548044 by Steven 67GT So it's either carry a spare throttle cable or Vincent in the trunk? smiling smiley

I like that idea... a much cuter version of a trunk monkey...

Hopefully the $6 bike cable holds up to the heat. Sometimes they don;t

Not to belittle the thread, as there are custom applications out there where fabricating your own cables is useful. I make up my own cables for my RHD race car with 45DCOE and also my supercharged Magnette.

But, if you don't happen to have a six year old handy, Moss Motors did listen to comments about the quality of cables on this forum. All of the new Moss accelerator cables for the MGB applications are made using very high quality stainless cables in low friction liners. $10 - $13 gets you a cable that should last a long, long time.


331-451 - 62-74
331-461 - 74 1/2
331-466 - 75-77
331-476 - 77-80
