Accelerator Cable

Post by cole63 on Mon Jul 24, 2017 10:01 am

My accelerator cable recently broke and I'm having trouble finding a replacement. My van is a 1965 with a 240. Any help would be great. Thanks

You can buy cable repair kits. Pull your broken cable out of the housing and thread the new cable in, then figure out which cable ends work best. Sadly, there are no after-market throttle cables for the early Econolines, at least that I've found.
Example kit on Amazon
