It provides a stop so the pulley can be forced down when the cable is pulled.


but doesn't the pin location over the boss basically give an initial alignment for minimum pump stroke length, provided the clearance is already there?

This is for Deet In your treasure trove of enduro knowledge is there a place in a manual or your records that will tell you the free length of cable extending from the end of the oil pump throttle cable when the twist grip is in the home position. Im sure somewhere there is a set of measurements for this since we cannot get original cables anymore for all the different oil pump cable actuator positions. I need the 78 dt400 I am working on it now making my own cable inards. I remember these things now and what a dog they were to fix when you were out riding and you bent or broke anything to do with the throttle split cable system

Might sound stupid--but--when i make cables i loosely solder the nipple on then fit cable then pull the outer to take up the clearance then measure the gap--with adjusters backed right off--& you know exactly how far to move the nipple along for final soldering & perfect inner length. My way anyway!!. Gotta remember that the cable sits down into the adjuster in your calculations too.

I actually just watched the video and I agree with it fully. Those pumps are indestructible and can take an amazing amount of abuse. No matter how corroded and rusted they look on the outside they still wok perfectly. I have taken 3 of them apart that looked real bad and the inside was in perfect shape I have done 21 bikes now and the autolube is working on all of them
