I must be missing something. Forgive me, I'm not a super guru on engines. Am I looking at the throttle?
The pic below shows two cables, the one with the string of beads goes to what I think is the Cruise Control unit. The lower cable goes into the firewall to the gas pedal I assume. the one below with the spring, goes to another metal arm. Am I looking at the wrong thing?
Those are your throttle cables. The speedo cables come up from the transfer case to the cruise control sensor near the firewall near the area where the wire harness comes through the firewall under the brake vacuum booster where. There are actually two cables one comes up from the transfer case and screw into the cruise control sensor. Then the second one goes from the sensor to the speedometer.
I disassembled the Speedometer cable sections today. I went to the parts store and asked them what I needed and they said I needed graphite powder. I got a tube and puffed it into each end of the cable shielding. As I pushed the actual cable back in, I puffed a bit more every foot or so. I did this on both sections and re-assembled. I took the Woody out for a test drive and I seem to have some improvement. I can now get up to 55mph before it starts bouncing past 55 and higher.
Does this mean I need to do more graphite powder? The inner cable itself was super clean. Picture are below. What is the electrical component that is in series with the speedometer cable?
CSP - Thank you. I did not think to clean the inside of the jacket. I Just pulled the cables out, inspected them, they were shiny and clean, and then applied the graphite. I'll give that a try next weekend.
Does any new grease need to be applied at the transfer case connection?
