Q: On the A-740 Ratchet Control Cable, how is the ratchet action applied and released? A twist of the handle?

This is not a locking cable. The shaft has internal notches, and as the knob is pushed in or pulled out you feel the ratchet effect which holds the cable in position.

Q: Regarding the A-740 Rachet Control: What is the diameter of the cable itself and the mounting hole in the panel?

The inner cable is .050" diameter, and the outer housing is 3/16" O.D.. The mounting hole is 3/8".

Q: A-0740 rachet control: the ratchet no longer works, i.e., it's a smooth push/pull without detents. Can this be fixed without taking the total control out? Just restoring the ratchet-dentent.

Per Vendor, First you would have to check if the spring is still in its slot. If it is, then you would have to take the total control out.

Q: Can the knobs be removed and replaced with metal ones that I have engraved? If so, what is the diameter and thread count on the knobs that are included (so I could match). Thanks.

The knobs can be removed if the cable is ordered that way, otherwise it is loctited on. The OD is 1 and the threads are 10-32. Please contact our sales department for price and lead time of special order controls.

Q: What is the maximum *useable* extension of the knob/control before the knob stops or is extended so far as to expose the .050 inner cable? Also, what is the diameter of the spiral casing?

The maximum extension is 3-3/8" and the diameter is 3/16.
