Many years ago Mike Belfer converted my throttle linkage to a pull cable, and
also moved it to the center. It was a simple conversion, and it works slick.
However, if I had my druthers, I think I would prefer a mechanical set up to
the cable. We have experienced cable failures from time to time (and always
at the most inopportune time). Another issue is that we often discovered a
burnt end at the cable break. The cable failure was the result of the
electrical system deciding to ADD another grounding point at a throttle cable
Switching to a mechanical set up is not an option open to us on the Thunder
Bolt, but is probably an option to consider on my TR3.
