    Kick Down / Throttle Cable Restoration?

    I don't have any pictures but a piece of 1/2' shrink tube from an industrial electrical supply house was the perfect product. It was in 24" or 36" pieces IIRC..

    Happy to help man. It was fun but tedious work for sure. The goal in life is to learn something new every day. If you aren't doing that you are backing up. Your 80 needed some assistance to get back into confident shape and now you know a lot more about the mechanics of your Cruiser. Hopefully...

    Correct on HWY 84. I can say with confidence all states but Oklahoma have those ruts. Oklahoma is just one big Pothole after another between expansion joints. I don't think you will be disappointed with the KM3s. Time will tell on the noise level. Seems that all aggressive tires harden and get...

    I can honestly say they are great on the road. Close to 2000 miles with some rocks on Ophir Pass with no issues. I didn't air down for the short run since I didn't have air with me but they never missed a beat. Heavy rain in Oregon was a little sketchy at highway speeds with the rain in the...

    Sorry for the delay. Been home for a few hours. Beers and brats at the Archer Cruiser Barn. These two are the ones responsible for our sickness. We had a 69 FJ55, our Dad bought it new. Many years of Cruiser history in the fam.

    Day 2.. Up and out early from Boise Id this morning. Perfect cold start, no leaks or out of the norm sounds. Truck runs absolutely flawless. Everything works, cruise set at 77mph and it keeps up very well. Not much to see along the Snake River, Evil Kanevil wasn't home so I boogied to SLC. One...

    Ok, first day is a success. Arrived in Portland at 4:10 early arrival, Pacific time is two hours earlier so basically 2pm. An Uber in a Kia with a guy named Mohammed got me to @MTNMAN133 's house close to 4. A quick once over with the Cruiser and I'm off to fuel up and start the journey East on...
