Throttle Cable Needed

Looking for a throttle cable that goes from the gas pedal to the carburetor. The part is 3' 2" long and has snap ends.

This is the part.





The part goes to a 1965 Ford N600 Flatbed with a 306 6 cyl. engine.

WARNING:

I have been dealing with an individual for the part listed in this post. when I received the part which was guaranteed to be the right part I found it was the wrong size and defective.

I asked for a refund and after 6 days of emailing this person I finally emailed that I would post a warning about his business practice. I got a very rude email and a refusal to refund my money for the parts I received.

I have been scammed for $50.00 by this individual which took me a while to save.

Do not deal with this person. He is not a man of honor, but a thief.

I have all the emails to prove my case. If this is a forum of honorable members I have placed this warning here.

There is no such thing as a 38" accelerator (throttle) cable for an N (or any other) Series truck. The only cable listed that is close is 37.75" and it's for a 1969/74 Econoline 170/240/300 I-6.

There is no such thing as a 306 I-6 engine. I assume this is a typo and you meant 300 I-6.

From the 1964/72 Ford Truck Parts Catalog:

C5TZ9A758F .. Accelerator Cable-34.06" long / Obsolete

Fits: 1965 N500/600 240/300 I-6 / No Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1966/69 N500/600 240/300 I-6's use a different accelerator cable, I found a few of these.

Suggest you call the sources and compare cables, because you prolly don't know of the one you have is original to the truck.

C5TZ9A758AD .. Accelerator Cable-34.06" long / Obsolete

GREEN SALES CO. in Cincinnati OH has ONE = 800-543-4959.

WESLEY OBSOLETE PARTS in Liberty KY has ONE = 606-787-5293..

MILLER OBSOLETE PARTS in Binghamton NY has TWO = 607-722-5371.

NumberDummy, Thanks for all that research and info.

It was hard to read that tag on the engine block. The tag did show the engine in the 300 cu. in. family but the engine size was hard to read so I took a stab at at either 300 or 306.

I did place the measuring tape along side the cable and it showed 3' 2". There could be slight discrepancies in measuring since the cable was snapped in two.

I was told the truck was a city truck from Massachusetts which once had a tank on the back. Of course I was also told the truck was original until I found the engine tag showed the engine the year to be 1974. My guess is that it may have been used as a fire brush truck and later given over to the city highway department. There is red paint under the green.

Here are a few photo's I recently took of the engine and tag.







I will check out the resources you listed for the accelerator cable.

Thanks again for rour research and posting this information.
