    Broken oil pump cable

    The oil pump cable on my matrix broke. Does the pump go to a fail safe "full oil" it has'nt siezed so I hope this is the case. What is the story with putting in a new cable, how do you know where to set the cable adjusters to and is it the original MSX 140 cable just hooked up to caburetors.

    Cheers John

    Don't know about the MSX, but the Fuji engines have a spring that sets the pump to full in case of an emergency. Seeing how the MSX is newer I would hope it would have similar safety measures in place.

    Its hard to tell as the spring turns the pump arm in the opposite direction that the throttle does when you open it up to give it more oil and fuel.

    When the cable breaks it goes to full oil 40:1
    In the tech section there is a picture showing how the arm aligns to the case marking when you replace the cable.

    Take a peak on e-bay or check ith the guys that are removing their oil injection systems. The attachment shows what cables will fit the MSX.

    Suparoo ,where did your cable break ?At the crank end of the oil pump or at the carby end .If it broke at the carby end (common)then depending on how frayed the cable was to whether the pump return spring will have enough tension strength to pull the frayed end through the sheath ,if it doesn't and you gave it heaps of throttle you may have an issue.If it broke at the crank end at the pump then it should go to full oil.

    Cheers

    ps. there are no roos in Kiwi land unless you stole one and took it home
