Re: throttle cable?

Try one from a ford van. I used one from a V8 van but have been told that a six cylinder ford has a super long throttle cable. It uses the same set-up as a jeep at the pedal and should bolt right in place on you winsor.

If you can, take a peek before buying. I hate to have you spend money on the wrong part.

Re: throttle cable?

In the 4WDH catalog there is one listed for 72-75 cj's that is 35 3/8" overall length. Another one that is 30 1/2" OAL. Check it out.
Lokar has an adjustable one...I think you can gett hem from Summit Racing.
