Hi all,
Changed my carb over to a HIFF44 and realised that I need a different throttle cable to fit into the heat shield on the carb which is arriving tomorrow.

I've managed to get it running, attached the choke cable (and rebuilt engine from head up) so feeling quite pleased, this is the final thing to get her on the road for a weekend jolly!

The car is stripped out so no complications with carpets and firewalls.
Are there any trick/tips?

Do I just pull the old one back through to the engine bay forcing the ferrel through the bulkhead and do opposite to fit the new one slotting the ferrel into the pedal and clipping the outer of the cable to the shield pull it taught then attach to bolt on the carb??

I'd really appreciate any input.
Thanks

No - pull the inner of the old one through into the car then remove the outer from the engine bay.
Fit new one in reverse order

There should also be a clip on the throttle peddle that stops the inner ferrel coming out of position during use. Make sure that get put back on.

I used a bit of old wire, fed it through from the cabin to the engine bay, taped the new cable to it and pulled it through. Easy!

Thinking about it - I’ve just never tried to do it without separating them as I always grease the cables as part of fitting them.

I have replaced the inner wire but not the outer sheilding which will need done. I'd try using a small punch and hammer once you have removed the wire from the car
