Re: Throttle control cable

At one end of the cable, cut and slit a piece rubber hose that just fits over the fixed part of the sheath, and overlaps the sliding part. Tightly clamp it to the sheath with a tiny hose clamp, put another over the sliding end and add just enough friction to stop the creep.
