    Default Dumb Question (Linkages)

    I know this is dumb, but I've never hooked a throttle cable to a carb (I'm used to diesels!). What hardware is needed to connect the cable to the arm on the carb? The end of my cable is threaded. Also, I know how to hook the reverse cable to the bucket, but how to I hook the cable to the shifter? What hardware is necessary to hook the threaded end of the cable to the arm on the shifter? Do you have to drill some holes to clamp the cable down so it doesn't move when you move the shifter? Thanks for the help and please exuse my inexperience.

    I'm guessing it's the same thing for hooking the cable up to the reverse shifter? Just anchor the cable to the inside of the fiberglass?

    My rev. shifter is mounted to a small panel of plywood glassed under the gunwale, where a standard 2-piece "horseshoe" cable jacket anchor is also mounted.

    I don't use a ball-joint on my reverse cable, if the cable gets stiff, or the reverse gate gets stuck (sand can do it), you'll snap it. at Rexmar got to "Cables", and look up the Heim Joints on page 109. Very little slack/looseness in them.
