Can someone who’s installed a Mosley kit and/or used the Lokar cable and bracket show me how they ran the cable on the firewall/pedal side please?


1985 FJ60

I checked for clearance, drilled from inside out, ran cable, marked gas pedal where cable hit, removed pedal and drilled a hole to accept the barrel on the end of the cable, test fit, remove and prime/paint, reinstall. Normal pedal feel and up to 98% TPS.

The cable needs to be secured where it cannot even get a whiff of the header. These cables have an inner sheath that the wire slides on and if you bump it into the header it’s a goner.

So here’s my dilemma fellas. Attempted to start the truck and I have a pretty spectacular fuel leak from the feed line fitting. When attaching them, I didn’t like how they felt when threading in, but I gave it the old college try. Comparing my visible threads to Dustin’s in post #17, something with my fittings or my fuel pump hat is askew. Unless I have the fittings screwed in backwards, I don’t know what else it could be. I’m lucky if I got maybe 2 turns out of those fittings before they wouldn’t go any further. Anyone run into this? I contacted Mosley but haven’t heard back yet.

Put some fuel safe RTV on the threads. Standards on threads are low.
They have aviation sealant all over them. What do you mean by standards on threads?

I can try some RTV on them if you think it will help, but I’m not sure if two(ish) turns on the fitting is going to seal 50 something psi.
And not to sound too bougie, but I’m doing this on my back on the garage floor. I’d really like to make sure I don’t have to drain the fuel and drop the tank 47 times to remedy this- I don’t want to cut a hole in the truck for access, which I know would make it so much easier.

If where you circled is where it is leaking you likely have a case of the male black threads being slightly off from the brass female.

They were likely built in two different parts of china


You need some fuel safe thread locker. Not aviation permatex.

This is what I use

Good to know, thanks. So should I just crank on them and hope I don’t shear one off and use some thread locker? I don’t mind getting new ones but how will I know if the new ones will be correct or not?
Edit: and thanks for all the advice, I know you’ve done multiple conversions so your knowledge is appreciated.
