Throttle cable question

Recommended Posts

mark64
I just got a great deal on a B212 this week. Only problem I have with the tractor is the throttle cable won't hold open with the tractor at full throttle. The lock seems to work fine at slower speeds. Is there a fix for this or do I have to look for a new cable? Thanks Mark

On my 700 series Allis I had to use vice grips to carefully crimp down the cable casing to get more friction so the choke cable would stay open.

Mark- I've got one with a too-slick plastic guide on the replacement cable, it does as you describe. I started with vice grips but it doesn't last long without leaving the vice grips on. Now I have what electricians call a split nut on the cable which is a better looking fix. It is really for splicing heavy wires, and pinches the cable real nice. If you want to go that route, check the electrical section of a bigger hardware store or big box. -Don

Don Thats a good idea, us lineman call that a split bolt connector. I will give that a try. The previous owner used a vice grip on the cable and I was looking for something better. Thanks for all of the info! Mark
