yea.. from looking at it I can see it will be...a pain in the A$$ Cant deside witch side is easyer to get into the radiator hose side with would involve removing 3 or so hoses or the vacuum line side , i dont wana mess with the vac-line side.. water hose side looks easyer.. tanks allready off so that's not a issue.. I guess its something i just gota figure out... gots lots of time to work on it. 1800$ in parts to put back on and thses throttle lines have to be first.......
i worked from the left side mostly. "when in doubt, remove it and make room", says Mr. Fat-hands. i took a 10 mm box wrench with "fine graduation", perhaps a 16 point? i ground probably 130 degrees out of the circle of the box wrench. a standard open end wrench didn't get me the ability to chip away at loosening the locknuts on the t/body end of the cables. with my special tool, i was able to take little 25 degree swings of the wrench, remove it , grab the next "purchase" and take another 25 degrees.
i didn't actually replace my cables, but i've removed the throttle body several times in the course of modding it for nitrous plumbing clearance
just had to show you all the add that popped up under this thread for me... is that you, bucky?
i'd like to replace the throttle cable myself, only because the fittings where the cable attaches to the throttle tube are corroded and look like crap. from the honda schematics, it looks like these fittings are part of the cable and can't be replaced seperately.
