So the rusty ol' throttle cable snapped on my Puch Pinto. A new one came in the mail from Mopedwarehouse.com, and it seemed to be dandy.
However, I am having a hell of a time installing it. I fit the cylindrical nub in the grip, put the other end in the cylinder-looking thing in the carb where it goes, locked it in place, everything's great. I gave it a test grip turn, and it works great...outside of the carb.
However, when I screw the top onto the carb and try to twist it again, it doesn't seem to work at all. The metal thread bulges out of the throttle assembly, pulling the rest of the cable out, which in turn gives it no slack and therefore no go.
Is the cable too long? Too short? Am I doing something wrong?
(I probably didn't explain this very well-I just spent 2 hours trying to install the darn thing and I'm really quite dehydrated/about to faint. Even if I wasn't, I wouldn't know the specific names of the parts anyway, ha)
