Default Carrier choke cable

Hi, Does anyone have a section of carrier used choke cable sheath ?, I need two pieces each about 19Ē long for a project, outside diameter needs to be the 6mm 1/4Ē type, no matter if surface rusty but needs to be structurally sound. Iíve attached a picture here.

Kevin.

Any chance this product might show up with vintage bicycle, or motorcycle, suppliers?

Hi, Thanks for the reply, Iíve looked into that and canít locate anything which has a 6mm or 1/4Ē outside diameter, plenty found about 4.5 to 5mm.

Kevin.

That style of outer is called Bowdenex, different to normal Bowden cable conduit.

Kevin,

Motorcycle clutch and front brake (Bowden) outer cables are around 6mm. The other cables are thinner. ( I've got some spare 6mm Bowden cables).

Thanks for the comments, what I need is all steel as I need to solder it so canít have a plastic sheath, a lot of Bowden cable manufactures donít want to know as it such a short length.

Buy a new speedo cable for a jeep and trade it to a friend for his old one.

It’s more akin to a teleflex cable off a powerboat.

Default Cable

Thanks for the replyís, I managed to source some cable from JJ cables in the U.K. with an OD of 4.6mm which was close enough to what I need, this would be suitable for the choke cable in a carrier but used for a different purpose here :
