Around here you can buy cable stops at any place that works on lawnmowers.

I found a really nifty cable stop at the local bicycle shop. It's used for brake cables.

Here it is and the final installation.

How strong is the throttle spring supposed to be? Should the throttle cable remain in position when the knob is pulled out? Or should the spring on the throttle rod pull the cable back down when the knob is released?

My throttle cable was disconnected when I bought my truck and the bracket on the carburetor is missing. I have had the truck for 5 years and and never really needed or wished I had a throttle cable hooked up. My heater does not have a heater valve and the hot water circulates through the heater core year round. I plan to re-purpose the throttle cable as a control cable for the heater valve I plan on installing. Inside the cab I will retain the original look and only I will know the true purpose of the T knob on the dash.
