Universal Cables, Push-Pull Shifter 1/4-28 96 Inches Long Bulkhead Style
Quantity Per Package: One cable.
Product Name: Shifter Cable
Cable Length: 96"
Thread: 1/4-28 RH
Cable Travel: 3" (Comment: The usable stroke 'travel' of a cable should be CENTERED on the travel range).
Linkage Ends: (1) one 1/4-28 RH x 1/4" bore female Spherical Rod End, steel-on-steel (two piece) housing, zinc plated, and (1) one 1/4-28 RH quick disconnect zinc plated ball joint.
Swivel Angle: This term refers to the slight misalignment allowable in the push-pull stroke of the cable as is accomplished by the guide 'tube' (the piece between the end of the conduit and the travel 'end rod'). The MAXIMUM conical movement around this centerline should NOT exceed 16°.
Installation: Do Not Bend any of the visible metal pieces, or any of the intersections of these visible metal pieces; these components are designed for a push-pull load only. Only install cables when all motors, engines, and power sources are turned OFF.
Bend Radii Warning: Each cable has a specified minimum bend radius. Failure to observe this minimum can at a minimum increase the force it takes to move the cable, and at worse, can cause the cable to kink inside of the conduit, which in turn can cause the cable to fail and/or not operate properly.
Bend Radius Minimum: 6"
Maximum Input Load: 75 lbs
Operating Temperature Ranges: -65° F to 225° F
Common Other Names for this Product: control cable, throttle cable, push-pull cable, heavy duty push pull cable.
Backlash: This term is used to describe the motion lost in moving (actuating) the cable. Although the cable design effects this to some extent, increasing the number of bends, or tightening the bend angles in the cable will increase cable backlash (less backlash is desirable, so minimize bends and bend angles in your installation). In other words, use large bend radii and small bend angles to keep your cable efficiency ('backlash') low.
(1) Do NOT adjust any cable length (ie: turning the ball joint or spherical rod end bearing or clevis) unless all power sources, engines, motors, etc are turned OFF.
(2) Cables wear out. Avoid putting cables in applications where a failure to operate would cause serious injury, death, or loss of significant operator control of the machine or vehicle. Maximize cable life by using larger cale sizes, shorter lengths, few degrees of bends, low loads, minimal exposure to the elements, etc.
(3) Use physical stops in your cable system to make it physically impossible to exceed the load rating or travel rating of the cable.
(4) If the cable losses efficiency (ie: becomes difficult to move), replace the cable IMMEDIATELY.
(5) Dirt, contaminants, temperature, moister, and cycles of use, ALL effect cable life. Avoid exposing the cable to gasoline, oil, fuels of any kind including diesel, biodiesel, water, dirt, fertilizer, road salt, and chemicals of any kind.
(6) Do NOT attempt to lubricate the cable.
(7) If the cable becomes frozen, or has been frozen with moisture inside of it, the cable MUST be replaced. Do NOT attempt to thaw or dry out cables.
(8) Do NOT remove the seals or boots provided with the cable. Replace immediately any cables that have lost or removed boots and/or seals.
(9) Do NOT attempt to modify or repair a cable.
