After 62 years the starter cable on my 1958 Cessna 172 broke. I replaced it with this one and am confident it will last even longer than the original. I like the smoothness when I pull to start (Teflon coated on the inside). I like the metal T-handle (better than plastic). All in all a great product from a great supplier of quality aircraft parts. Thank You Lloyd

T-Handle was just what I was looking for. Works well on my C140. Replaced my starter pull. On needed a 3 foot length . Your customer service rep could not find it in your catalog??? I had to thumb through An old Spruce catalog to find it and call again with item number.

Q: What are the dimensions of the T handle for this A-1770 glide free control? Length, width, and protrusion from dash. Thanks!

The approximate dimensions for the knob on this control are: 2-1/4" Length x 1/2" Width x 1-1/8" protrusion from dash.

Q: What is the cable diameter for the T-handle glide free control p/n: A-1770?

The wire's diameter is .05" O.D. The casing is 3/16".

Q: Can the handle be removed? If so is how is it attached to the cable? 1/4-28 thread?

The T-Handle is threaded and put on with loctite. The loctite can be "broken" with a torch but that may possibly damage the T-Handle and the control.

Q: Please specify the size and pitch of the thread on the end fitting located behind the T handle for the A-1770 control.

The thread is 3/8-24 so you will need to drill a 3/8" hole in your panel to fit this through.
