Hardtop Cam & Cable Conundrum
I have a CJ7 hardtop that I have been restoring for the last month or so. Things have gone relatively well thus far... I did the outside in black Monstaliner and the inside in the tintable light gray. I also went through and replaced all of the hardware, including the cam & cable and latches on the rear lift gate. Here's the problem... The replacement cam & cable assembly is too long. There's no way to get into the assembly, and cutting the cable to length isn't something I want to do. Given that this should be a fixed length, this shouldn't be a problem. What am I missing?
