Yardman throttle cable sachs engine

David Foti /


I have a 1979 yardman moped with a sachs engine and I am in need of a throttle cable. To make it worse I had the broken cable but I beleive my son threw it out so now I'm having a real problem finding one. Any help is very much appreciated.

Look up mopeds in the phone book and find a dealer who can help you out, a bicycle cable will probably also work.

Take a bike brake cable and use a bench grinder to shape the fitting on one end into something that's looks like a cylinder is about and an 8th of an inch across and about as tall..that should work.

You should be able to get a new cable, but if you can't I can attest to the efficacy of making your own cable. I put over 30,000 miles on my machine with all home made cables (throttle, front brake, clutch, and two shift cables). It may be a little more difficult without the old one to take measurments from, but it should still be possible. I also recomend trying to get an adjustable fitting called a "barrell end". it looks like a very small barrell with a set screw to allow it to be attached to a cable at any point. These often fit at the control end (ie lever or twist grip) and come in several sizes and types. Good luck!

Do you know of any Yardman Snow Blowers ?

My dad wants one for a Christmas Gift but I can't find one on the web
