Ellison EFS3A throttle cable attachment to home-made bracket. This is prototype #2. Final version will be more centered on the intake tube and will have cable jacket stops on both front & back of the bracket, as back-ups in case the cable slips.

Norm - 

The part is from Aircraft Spruce, http://www.aircraftspruce.com/search/search.php?s=05-16001+WIRE+GRI...

I am going to crank it tight and then silver-solder it just for extra security.  I've seen other throttle cables use these, but I like the idea of "super-connecting" it, just for peace of mind.  It might be overkill, but what the heck. 

Ken:  THANKS!!! You made it all possible!

Brian, I'm curious as to the fittings on the end of the throttle cable. Are they swagged on or adjustable like a collet and are they available somewhere?

I haven't the slightest idea what it is Brian but it sure makes a lot of noise.
