Best way to tightnen choke cable

Recommended Posts

2burning
What ideas do people have for tightening up choke cables that keep vibrating partially on? This would be a 716H with Kohler push-pull type cable. I have tighened others up by squashing the clamp down tighter on junk machine (Dynamark) but would like to see if there are better ideas. I probably caused it myself by lubricating the cable up with oil. Doh!

Flatten or crimp the conduit a little where the wire comes out so that there is a little friction on the wire when you open or close the choke. That should solve the problem. Is the conduit clamped down tight so that it isn`t moving under the clamp?

Yes, the clamp is secure. I will just go ahead and crimp it down a little to tighten it up then. While trying to set the carb mixture screws, I thought I was going crazy becasue the it kept moving all around on me. Thanks RayS.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
