    Yeah,I get that as well.Jim. The order goes through and the refund pops up about a day later.
    Same with the MK II battery hold down.

    SO,add one more thing to my list:
    Lube the existing throttle cable..I have a bicycle/motorcycle cable lubing tool.Should work fine,but it makes a BIG mess. WD-40 stinks! Maybe Triflon,with PTFE.
    The cruise control cable gets very little use.
    My throttle cable DOES!

    I've got some graphite powder in light oil that I might drip into it.

    I'll have it off when I pull the intake manifold to replace the injectors, fuel filter, and probably the starter as well.

    I've heard it's a whole lot easier to get those last items if the intake manifold is out of there.
