Mousetrap eliminator replacement cable

#1

Post by DJ » Tue May 25, 2004 7:53 pm

Does anybody know where I could get a proper replacement cable for the mousetrap eliminator setup? I don't need one right now, because the one I have is good, but I would like to have a spare for the future.
I don't see one in the V-Twin catalog, but I bet there is one in there that would be suitable, but I don't want to waste my money without some recommendation.
Thanks in advance......

DJ, try http://www.nosparts.com You will need a OEM part # to do a search.. Excellent parts source for NOS & aftermarket. You make the choice..
For the Europeans is http://www.jwboon.com
Hope this hooks you up. If not post again & we'll go another direction.

Billy, Thanks, but I think I figured it out.
Concerning the mouse trap eliminator kit from: http://www.jammerclub.com/
"This kit eliminates mousetrap linkage on pre-1968 models and converts them to late-model (1968-early 1979) soft-pull linkage"
So.....I am assuming that a stock cable from this era would work. A quick search using the OEM# below yielded no results at nosparts.....BUT
Barnett makes this cable.....
"FL models from 1968 thru 1975 and FL models with 4-speed transmissions from 1976 thru 1984- Replaces OEM #38618-68C- Stock"
Problem solved. I hope. And thanks for recommending nosparts over V-Twin (or so it seems)......I've read some dis-encouraging posts here concerning them, but they do have some items that I am not able to find elsewhere......yet.

DJ, you got it!! it's working out!! :) Cool!!
I forgot nosparts stops at the 1965 Pan.
But goes to '73 for My Flatty needs!!!
Yes, That was a definite point toward nos over vtwain.
There are times that you just can't find that certain something, & tedd will have it....But I will try EVERYWHERE else first!!! Bad experiences.. >Sad
my 4 cents..... inflation
