Finished my motor swap from D15B8 to D15B7 in my Honda... HOWEVER, the intake manifold started spraying coolant

Sooo, tomorrow going to swap the old intake manifold on! Whoo hoo!

Owning an old, limited edition vehicle makes finding parts a challenge. I had to make my own accelerator cable today because they are discontinued through GM.

I had a throttle cable from my motorcycle laying around and it became the donor.

The casing on mine was rotten.


I cut the connectors what was left of the old cable, then drilled them back out to 1/4" to fit the new cable.



Next I cut the cable to length. I didnt know the exact length since the old casing was rotten, but got it close and just adjusted the cable length.



I cut the cable to length and silver soldered the end to keep it from fraying.



I epoxied the case into the fittings to secure them. Then put some heat shrink over it just for good measure.





I then soldered some small nuts in place as the cable stays.



It all works great now, no more sticky throttle and 0-100% tps is perfect now.
