[DML] Re:Cruise Control & Throttle Cables


  Man, I didn't know anyone still had any of these left, at least "new" in 
the box. I've been running mine for 8 or 9 years now with no problems. 
   Two things to check. The first is that the cable for the cruise control is 
located close to and follows the same path as the throttle cable. The second 
thing I've done is about half way around the throttle spool, where the two 
cables are now running in the groove, you will see a small hole in the spool. Put 
a small plastic zip tie thru this whole and tie the two cables to the spool. 
Even at full throttle the cables don't come past this point, so it won't 
restrict the throttle operation, but it will help hold things together if there is 
a little slack in the cables.
  Let me know if you have any more problems.

8. Cruise Control & Throttle Cables

I recently finished installing a cruise control unit...

(hey Marty!  Remember that kit I bought 8 years ago?  I just put it in!)

...anyway, so I just finished installing cruise control.  On a long drive I 
had the throttle cable jump track.

I got to thinking, if I removed the return spring on gas pedal, shouldn't 
that help keep the pedal down & hence the throttle cable will stay taught in 
the spool groove/guide?  The throttle assembly on the engine has 3 different 
return springs already... how much more help can this 4th one be?

I figured that if I did this & then added some kind of extra guides on the 
spool, that I should be pretty much covered.  Am I overlooking something 
obvious?  Any insight from the group?
