    YKC roadster, 2.0 Pinto with DGAV carb: I have just replaced the throttle cable as it was fraying and breaking at the carb end. On removing it I found the inner cable very frayed and broken inside the sleeve at the sharp bend where it has to bend back by the carb to clear the bonnet side panel. It really is a very sharp bend.

    Has anyone fitted a different throttle linkage to cure this, or even is it possible to turn the carb 180 so the cable runs directly over the top of the engine with only a 90 degree bend instead of the 270 one it does now?

    HCD do a throttle linkage that might be suitable. Not cheap mind.

    The cable routes over the rocker cover and down to the cam on the linkage giving a smoother run.

    They have an eBay shop but they're out of stock at the moment https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-2L-P...QAAOSw0UdXvYhX You could message them if it's of interest.

    Thanks, I can't however picture how that Ball joint on the end of the cable attaches to that half circular pulley? Have you used one?

    That bracket between the carb cam and cable end, shorten it and your troubles are over.

    Kit Spares [think they are part of GBS] have a cable with a 90 degree formed outer sheath at one end to clear bonnet. Might be of use.

    I haven't got one yet; other bits to fix have priority

    The ball joint fixes on to the pedal. The other end of the cable is shown in the image below.

    Thanks Jon, maybe I should have been clearer. That picture of the cable end is not the same as the one you showed in the picture of the HCD linkage. That is a normal Ford barrel end. I understand those having got one.

    The picture of the HCD linkage you showed clearly shows a pulley with a hole for a barrel end fitting, however their cable has a threaded rose jointed end which bears no relationship to the pulley. That is what I am questioning. HCDs website sheds no light either, that is why I was wondering if you had actually fitted one.

    No, I think it's me that wasn't clear. The cable end shown in their eBay listing with the threaded ball and socket attaches to the pedal. At the other end is a barrel to slot into the pulley.

    Managed to find a better image:
