Size Nut to Thread on to Cable Housing

Recommended Posts

laytonlight

From what I understand in reading here and watching some of Zippos videos, a nut should be able to thread on to cable like this for properly running it through the bracket (yellow circle) and using the nuts to adjust the throttle and lock it in place. You can see how the PO had it run (red circle) and I want to eliminate that and run it properly but for the life of me I've looked and can't find a nut that will thread on the cable. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Checked on Briggs' site and came up with this:

691027  Nut | (Control Wire Casing)  $6.05

Does that sound right? Six dollars for one nut. Geeze, Briggs, thanks for not gouging the little guy...

Found some on Ebay for $4.65 each with free shipping. Looking at the pictures there I can see why nothing else works. It's a really wide threading to fit the cable wrapping. Bought four of them as I have Briggs 16 HP that I plan on doing the same thing to. Thanks for the help Tom.

Hmmm, I pretty sure all the Simplicity OEM Briggs engines I've had have throttle cables ran as you shown in your first pic - a 90 deg metal bracket screwed to the top of the inlet manifold with a Bowden clip holding the throttle cable in the desired location.  Here's a few pics from a 7016H and 3416H:

And the 3416H Parts IPL:

Maybe what you describe (and Zippo's video) is the "Briggs" method rather than Simplicity?

I think you are correct in that assessment, but it just seemed a better way or more accurate way to do it as far as making adjustments in the throttle. I wanted to run new, lubed cables anyway so I thought I would do it the way Zippo had shown.

Oh no...you can do a LOT better than hazard freight! Shop around and find a good used lathe, and invest in a QC toolpost. They are soooooo much nicer than the old style tool posts.

Agreed! $500 will get you a nice South bend 9" Jr.  I've had mine for years.  Does anything I need to do.

Lathe is the cheap part.  Attachments & tooling really ads up though.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
