Was trawling through the bay,so many potential cables!
Need to consider length, fittings some even mention BHP it's a minefield
Is there no standard cable given RH's are all in the main built to the same layout
What do people use for a type9 with Sierra box???
I have become most paranoid now as I don't wish to purchase a wrong cable, is there a minimum suggested length??
Thanks for responses so far
Ps. It may be an expensive bell housing, but it is most impractical!
Which one of the cosworth cables did you opt for?
Not really able to go for an adjustable as the nuts go either side of the lever entry point,which I can't access

The standard sierra cable is on the short side and requires to be run between the centre of the exhaust manifold, which is then subject to excessive heat. The 2 WD cosworth cable is long enough to go around the front of the engine and avoid the heat build up. Neither of these cables have adjusters to my knowledge, and are the correct length for the automatic adjustment of the sierra peddle box.

same as cb750.

 

I wrote a thread recently about my problem with not enough pull on the longer 2wd cosworth cable. I solved this in part by removing the squidgy bush at the pedal end and replacing with a solid block (actually an old suspension bush off the front). I also had to put something down the gap of the quadrant to make it bigger. I had the yellow 45mm one and after putting a bit of 3core+e down the gap it brings it up to about 55mm. Seems to be fine now.
