I had the same problem with my throttle cable as well. I had it hooked up correctly, but the throttle spring was too strong and therefore forced the dash knob to stay against the dash. I haven't messed with it any further, however I did drive a friends '54 with a 235 recently, and the throttle cable worked perfectly. Really came in handy on cold starts for warming up the engine.

I think I’ll be on the lookout for an original cable to replace this overseas crap. In the interim, it fills the hole!

Could someone please post a picture or pictures of both the choke and throttle cables from where they leave the firewall all the way to the carburetor attach points. On my 1947 Chevy 3100 at some point someone put on new choke and throttle cables...but rather than cut them to size they just wrapped them around the base of the carburetor. They work but it looks real tacky under the hood. Thanks, ray

For replacing the cable housing, go to your local bicycle shop and ask for bicycle brake cable housing.......OMG!

Question. How does everyone lubricate inside the sheathing to keep the cable moving easy?
Thanks for any replies

My cable is new; however, I removed the inner cable and gave it a liberal coating of light oil prior to installation. Some will simply oil the exterior cable housing and let the lubricant 'bleed' its way to the inner cable. The more adventurous will remove the inner cable and slather it with oil, oil the cable housing, and then spend the rest of the afternoon trying insert the inner cable into the housing......... grin

I found that Oil attracts the finest of dust and makes a mess
I use wax instead and so far seems to be good enough
Besides the friction helps it stay put smile
You got to pull out the wire for wax, but I do that before installing it
Haven’t lubricated them since installed

Pull the inner cable and grease it. Stick it back into the outer cable housing.
