2014_03_16 Temp Control Cable

IMG 2831  New. Control side. Not too cool. It doesn't fit properly, is reversed, and the attaching hole doesn't line up to the control unit housing. Sweet! IMG 2830  Old. Control side. Busted up plastic retainer. What, these things don't last over 45 years? IMG 2832  Door side showing old vs new retainers. New is actually a better method for adjustment. The retainer is staked on the ends to follow the winding for adjustment. IMG 2833  Old verses new cable OAL. Yeah, suppliers, what's up with that?
IMG 2834  Old. Control side showing reversed retainer. One of these two is as wrong as ObamaCare. IMG 2835  Old #2. Control side showing reversed retainer. One of these two is as wrong as ObamaCare. IMG 2845  The fix: Removed the reversed clip and cut the end loop. IMG 2846  Reshaped and reattched the clip in the proper orientation.
IMG 2847  The attachment hole is now at the correct height. IMG 2848  My spring jig for small gun springs. This wire is huge compared to what I'm used to, but it worked. IMG 2849  First bend IMG 2851  Nuther end loop pic. Not my neatest job, but I'm good with it.
IMG 2850  Results. This cable is now identical in size to the original IMG 2852  Wires pulled forward shows identical lengths. IMG 2853  And the final test is to attach it to the control housing bracket. It lines up properly! IT'S MILLER TIME!!
