Mixture control (choke!) cable change, saloon

Post by Alpine Daimler » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:44 pm

Anyone out there ever done this?

Mine I believe is a tad too short causing the control lever to be reluctant to return fully to the Run (off) position although no further enrichment is apparent when it goes as far as it wants!

Looks like one of those "devil of a job" jobs which may entail a lot of fiddly removal of side facia of dash and a lot of other stuff which is not one of my "core skills" as some say.

Hi, yep a right pig, but I found it best to either take that side of the dash out after trying the rear escutcheon nuts were impossible tight, but still had skinned knuckles, make sure you have enough free play in the cable,a small racket 1/4" size helps if doing it behind the dash, but is one job I don't want to do again. good luck.
