Hi Guys

can anybody help us out were looking for a new throttle for Curlew as the old one packed in on the weekend. (Full story later)

second question we are looking for throttle cable say 30ft should be more than enough incase of obstructions we got quoted £250 we are looking to cut out the middle man and see if we can get these much cheaper online.

Thank for reading this Jonny

That looks like a 70's morse single lever throttle / gearchange head Jonny, our friends at Hindle controls hare having a bit of a clear out of longer morse cable at stupid prices (£20 - £30 for a 7 oe 8 metre for instance) there are also some good morse control heads on ebay at sensible money.

Jonny, measure the length You need from the control head to the other end taking in a nice gentle radius wher it bends, not too tight a bend. Then take the number off the head and ring Hindle, they will fix you up with the right stuff.

Not if you want a good deal Jonny, most people other than specialist control places will not stock the full range anyway, Hindle are in Bradford so just an hour away.

Have you looked on their ebay shop Jonny, they have some of that length for about £20 to £30 each.

Maths lesson for you Jonny, first metre £11.99, further 9 metres to take you up to 10 metres @ £0.40 per .25 metre, so £1.60 per metre or £14.40 per 9 metres, so 11.99 + 14.40 = £26.39 + postage, for your 30 foot requirement 9.25 metres would be the appropriate length by the way so a few pence less than that.
