I have an in-line six cylinder ford stationary power unit that needs a throttle cable. The kind that has a black knob that you screw out to increase throttle and push the button to push the throttle in. I was at the industrial Ford dealer a couple of years ago and I think they wanted like $70 bucks or so for the cable. Does anyone know where to buy them a little more reasonable? Thanks for any suggestions.

That would put you 100 miles +or- a few miles south east of me. I am just south of the Twin Cities. I have a few V4 Wisconsin's that I have not ran in several years and two 2 cylinders that I have not ran in many years. My Wisconsin's are all crank start and I am getting tired of the crank. I am looking for a VE size with an electric start if I can find one reasonable. have a great day.

GOOGLE "vernier throttle cable".

For example, one ebay seller has them for $35.

I will check that out, $35 sounds more reasonable than $70. I will look at NAPA too as Greygoat suggested. Thanks

The Wisconsin throttles are similar to the one I want. I will stop at NAPA and see what they have. Maybe they have more than one kind.

Many years ago a surplus steel yard had a lot of the throttles used on Wisconsin's for about $5 each.

What part of Western Wisconsin do you live in?

Thanks for the tip on throttles they could have the one I need.

I know we would get yelled at for breaking them at work because they were pretty pricey. Maybe that is just the going rate???
