Throttle Cable Issue

Friday, March 23rd, 2007
When installing my UMI steering system I had to adjust the slack in my throttle cable. Following it to the throttle body I notice it was zip tied to the fuel rail. No biggy but the cable was rubbing the hard metal of the rail causing my cable to loose its protective plastic covering.

So I simply snipped off the zip tie holding the cable and used the rubber coated cable guide attached to the valve cover. Be sure the cable goes under the spark plug wires.

Notice how the cable now avoids the fuel rail without excessive tension.
