Tempomat/Cruise Control Bowden Cabel

(1/3) > >>

TNNBENZ:
One of the first things I did when I started to restore my 450sel was breaking the plastic screw on the Bowden Cable. I was so anxious to get started on my injectors I moved the cable thinking  oh it will not break. Well it broke !!! I should have taken my time........of well.
Now after countless hours of research & buying many parts I am ready to rebuild my fuel system.  Will this broken adjuster keep the car from running properly ? I hope it only applies to the CRUISE control & not affect the idle or normal fuel flow !!! Anyone know what I should do ???

ptashek:
It's only for the cruise cable. Also, the cable is no longer available and the screw was an integral part of it. You can probably make a cable from readily available parts and have a machine shop make the screw. The original was made from Delrin.

Even though NLA forever, those cables have been popping up regularly.  Problem is mailing services can be surper expensive no, depending on location. Still worth a look, I'd say.

raueda1:
Not sure if it's really NLA.  I got one fairly recently from the Classic Center. It seems like things come and go.  It doesn't have the screw thing though as I recall.
