$110 for range cable a month ago when I checked. I cut mine apart at one end and pulled it apart and lubed it up with a real light oil (maybe should have used graphite instead) and then brazed it back together using a copper sleeve I made to reconnect the cable. I made a steel sleeve for the short outer tube and soldered that together. Works great now and saved $110. To get at the cable on top of tranny just remove the floor plate and it's real easy. I tried this fix because I figured at worst I would be out a little time and at best I would save $110.

Just a thought as I have seen plenty post here with range cable troubles. The one that was bad was the heavier of the two but I assume the same fix could be used on the lighter second cable too.

It is always good to get the problem fixed without spending money.
I broke the hood release handle on my Jeep. I think the new cable wa $65.00.
I put some pliers in the glove box and when I need to open the hood I just pull the cable with the pliers. Problem solved. No Charge.

Today's Featured Article - Earthmaster Project Progress Just a little update on my Earthmaster......it's back from the dead! I pulled the head, and soaked the stuck valves with mystery oil overnight, re-installed the head, and bingo, the compression returned. But alas, my carb foiled me again, it would fire a second then flood out. After numerous dead ends for a replacement carb, I went to work fixing mine.I soldered new floats on the float arm, they came from an old motorcycle carb, replaced the packing on the throttle shaft with o-rings, cut new ga ...
