Was working on my tii booster cylinder install today and happened to peek down at the throttle pedal lever.


Had about 2 pieces of cable strands still attached, the rest frayed away. Turns out my mechanic had adjusted my throttle pedal lever a bit higher at full return, and the cable was running almost 90 deg to the cable barrel down there at the pedal.

Not sure if I'll be heading back to that shop anytime soon.

Ordered a new cable today. Doh. That might have been a bit frustrating merging onto the freeway and suddenly finding that I had no throttle linkage. That gets added to the preflight checklist, I guess.
