Yamaha 80, teleflex cable end passes through the steel tube on the engine clamp, leaving the stainless telescoping bit with the eye in the end poking out. what connects the engine to the end of the cable?
I worked out there is a drag link, and assumed there must be a ball joint at at least one end(engine end). A chandler i rang said the drag lings are £30 and there is no ball or rose joint, just a bolt running through. Is this so? Ifit is i aint paying £30 for one i have access to the stainless stock and could bend one up in 10 minutes. it sounds from the description its just a 10mm bar with a 90 degree bend at one end threaded, and an eye at the other. Using a bolt as a pivit sounds like bad enginering to me andi would use a rose joint.
