    I wonder if you can use the same mix for mohair tonneau covers and roofing.

    I don't recall which member suggested the idea of replacing the throttle outer cable with a teflon-lined, braided type - but I've just done it. Whilst there, I shortened the outer cable - removing a somewhat unnecessary 'S' bend in the line. Wow - the difference - I now have the lightest of return spring fitted - and the throttle pedal is feather-light. Amazing. Don't forget to clean/de-grease the inner cable when you do it.
    Also, I want to mention 'Venhill Engineering Ltd' for their ferrules - these cable experts supplied exactly what I needed to complete the job. The perfect stepped-end ferrules to fit the outer cable. Great company to deal with.
    DAX Cobra. May contain nuts. Always read the label.

    Sounds like a good job, well done. How about posting where you got all the bits from plus component details?

    Yes, I have to make up a whole new cable so this would be very useful.

    Took the old black Dax to the Helmingham Hall Classic Car show and parked next to Mrs B's Triumph Spitfire (fresh out of lockdown restoration).

    Well not exactly a cobra but what a lovely car!! Mike Halewood's Iso Grifo which now belongs to a local collector. Just had a look at the carb this morning to try to solve a high end problem



    Tuned the carb, replaced float valves etc but did not solve the problem! More tests needed!!! Took a long time to fill the float chambers so might be a fuel pump issue. She was set well rich which could have been to compensate for poor fuel supply, anyway it's going to be the usual process of elimination. Will have to work things through.

    Engine is a 327 Chevy.

    A pleasure to fiddle with. Just hope we can find the issue.............

    Put inline fuel pressure gauge will show if you pump or pressure regulator is the problem. Should get about 5 psi into the feed line too the carb.
