After coming up with the throttle kit idea Butty’s Bits started looking at other areas that had not really been covered, our bus always suffered with the throttle / accelerator cable cutting into the gearbox just after the cable comes out of the chassis section in front of the gearbox. VW originally fitted a floppy tube setup that is no longer available, only way around this problem prior to this kit was to modify a Beetle tube.
We always found these tubes to create drag on the cable, so cable would stick.
This roller just bolts to the gearbox, kit comes with a new M8 nut and locking washer, you simply undo the nut and bolt this kit on, leaving it loose until the cable is threaded through, then set the best position for it to sit in and torque up the gearbox nut, that is it. Very easy if like us you do not run heat exchangers. Still doable with heat exchangers just a little less room to swing the spanner. Will fit stock or modified vehicles Swing (probably will not fit Baywindow gearboxes, but can look into it if you require something like this).
Both the rollers have bearings inside and the body sections are plated in an anti corrosion plating.
Cheap piece of kit that makes the cable run very free, and stops the cable sawing into the gearbox.
Most gearboxes have these cable scars. It’s a fit and forget item.
