Does the throttle cable Go to the carburetor?
Install the opposite ends of the throttle cables to the carburetor or throttle body, tightening the threaded ends of the cable guides into the cable bracket completely. Slide the cables’ barrels into the valve catches and twist the throttle tube slightly to check that the valves open and close properly.
How do you install a throttle cable?
Push the new cable through the firewall and into the engine compartment. Step 2: Hook the new cable up to the accelerator pedal. Slide the new cable through the slotted hole in the accelerator pedal. Step 3: Reconnect the throttle cable to the retaining bracket.
How do you remove throttle cable from carburetor?
To remove the throttle cable, first pull the rubber on the cable. Then unscrew the locknut, which is closest to the carburetor, from the throttle cable. The locknut is attached to the tubular L – shaped fitting which comes out of the triangular cover on the brake side of the quad.
How tight should throttle cable be?
The accelerator cable tension is usually set so that 2-3mm of free play is present in the throttle grip. Once the correct tension has been applied, the lock nuts should be snugged and any dust covers should be slid back over the adjusters. Cables can be adjusted using the appropriate size wrench.
Is throttle cable and accelerator cable the same?
Your car’s accelerator cable, also known as a throttle cable, is a braided metal wire that connects the gas pedal to the engine throttle plate.
Are throttle cables universal?
In today’s modern vehicles, throttle cables are obsolete with the widespread use of drive-by-wire throttle pedal assemblies. Our universal throttle cable offerings fit most any application or engine type and mounting location.
Why is my throttle cable stuck?
A sticky throttle could be caused by worn cables, lack of lubrication in the cables or the cable getting bound up somewhere in the mechanism. Or it can be caused by an issue with the carburetor or EFI. If the screws in the throttle housing are too tight it could cause the cable to stick.
