I did not use this. I messed up by ordering the wrong length. Measured 2 from the instrument panel to the firewall and then 4 feet from the firewall to where the end of the cable would be. Then I preceded to order a 4 cable instead of a 6 cable.
Great cable and great price. As the other review says, the knob is a little rough. I removed the knob, put it in the lathe and was able to quickly smooth out the mold lines with some 400 grit sandpaper. Then with a light touch of flame from the torch the knob came out smooth and glossy, looks great and feels good in your hand.
Nice good quality throttle cable that is more than adequate for my needs especially at 1/4 the cost of the quote I got from Mc-- for essentially the same unit. My airplane had the same ACS throttle only with a vernier control which I discovered I very much didnt like the first time I had to do a go around. With a vernier throttle you find yourself hunting for the release button to add power when time is critical. Thats a non player in my book after 40 years of aviating. The knob, although standard, is a little chinsier looking that the other brand but I was going to replace it with a nice aftermarket carbon fiber or billet alum shift knob from eBay anyway.

1/4" O.D. on the cable but the swaged on part is 3/8". Customer would need to drill a 3/8" hole and use a AN931 grommet.
The diameter for the hole would be 1/2".

No, it is not recommended that these controls be cut.
This will have a 10-32 threads at the end of the cable.
