K Series Throttle Cables SBB10176 on eBay £10 BARGAIN

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm//273597588092

NTDWM - Looks like BookaTrack selling off Caterham stock, but these are not easy to come by and they got for a lot more than £10. 7 available right now.

Its not the same one as fitted to my 2001 Roadsport - which is much more like:

Different fixing at the engine end.

Hmmm that's interesting ... What throttle body do you have? Mine is a VVC and all the ones with the metal 48mm or 52mm TBs that I've seen use SBB10176 I'm sure. Just out of interest can you post a picture of the engine end of yours?

SV VVC 170 - 170.4 bhp @ 7100 rpm - 142.4 ft.lb. @ 4900 rpm

Andrew,

mine is like yours but the ones in the bags look different?

Yep, mines like the throttle above - although mine now operates a Rover 2600 throttle cam attached to Jenveys.

I just have the inner cable from this in the boot for a quick roadside repair and use the inner part of an electrical connector block for the pedal end. You really shouldn’t be carrying around all that extra weight of the outer (albeit untested!). https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F182789732350

I just made sure mine ran in such as way it didn't rub or kink - so I don't need to carry a spare ;-)

After all, do you carry a spare in your tin top that you probably do more miles in?  When was the last time you replaced one in a "normal" car?

We'll ignore the fact more modern cars don't even have the bowden cable . . .

Tin tops don’t have such a crude cable connection to the pedal or such limited space affecting the routing.

Ooh they do, or did.  I've had cars where owners have resorted to gluing clevis pins or clips to the ends their fingers to get them back on ;-)

Take the pedal box cover off a Caterham (on mine anyway) and there it is - smack in front of you - you can see it, you can work on it without standing on your head, a torch in your teeth, balanced over the back of the front seat, one arm under your head trying to get it around and in position to fix some clip, cable end in place :-)

And such an open engine bay you can run it where you want.

Open a Lancia integrale bonnet . .. or a V6 Alfa 159 . . .and then tell me you have limited space ;-)
