Choke cable routing

Post by Robin Jones » Tue Sep 18, 2012 0:12

Would someone please snap off a couple of digital pics of their choke cable routing?
MK1-MK2 848 pics from under the dash and inside the engine compartment. I keep having to replace mine when they start sticking in the choke position.
I know I'm doing something wrong as the cable should be good for most of the life of the car. I think I've got too sharp of bends but want to see how the original was routed.

Thanks for that Wally. I'll have to try it that way.
Right now, mine drops down nearer the dash and kinda does a bit of a roller-coaster before exiting into the engine compartment.

Why not drill another better positioned hole in the bulkhead ?

Mokes create enough holes on their own through the tin worm. Why would anyone make more? :?:
Besides, the choke cable needs to feed from below the carb... if anything, maybe I should think about shortening the whole thing and just mount it in the bulkhead hole. :roll:

Hi Robin,
How did you go on with the choke cable route? Did you shorten the cable? make another hole?

Not a ding-dang thing this year..... :lol:
Up until the last few weeks, weather was warm enough where I could coax it to fire 'n run... And the couple of times it wasn't, there's always the hand-choke. :roll:
And I really prefer taking the short opportunity left this season for driving instead of fixing...

What weaken the bulkhead further and provide yet another point for rust?

Do you treat the edges of any new holes you put into for Mini Moke?
Having a moking good time!
