2 piece throttle cable???

I have a 93 fwb and the throttle cable broke.

All the replacement cables are one piece.....

The cable that is on my ride is a two piece cable.


Where in the hell can i find the detent cable i need?

Can i rig a single piece cable to work?

it's traction control (ghetto TC). if you ever break the tires loose you will feel the gas pedal kick up right under your foot.

B-bodies didn't get that option. only fleetwood as far as i know.

Ok so how do i get my trans to work if the two piece cable is no longer available?

Can i run a tv cable from the the throttle directly to the trans?

If the sheath is still good, and you have the cable (complete end to end), you could probably have a new cable portion made. Find a place that makes cables (custom motorcycle shop) and take the entire cable and sheath to them. They can make a new cable (you need the ends for comparison, and length for correct fit) with your sheath. They may have to cut a longer premade cable to use in your sheath if they do not have bulk cable. The ends are pretty much standard, but there are a few different types. The ends are swaged onto the cable, so there aren't any weird tool needed.

There may even be someone on the internet who makes custom cables.

Your other option is to get one from a junk yard.

If you can determine what shape the end was, the cable can be remade with a new cable in the old sheath. It is a swaged piece that makes a T at the end of the cable. That end of the throttle cable is the same as the cruise control cable that is attached next to it. If the end is the one to the throttle pedal, it is a tubular piece swaged to the cable end. It is the same as all B body cable ends for the pedal side of the cable. You can remove the CC cable to take with you if that is the end that is missing. Take the original throttle cable and sheath so one of the same length can be made for use in your sheath. It should cost you about $20.

There are no other cables for the B or D bodies that are adaptable to the Fleetwood.
