Default better throttle cable clearance with vanity cover

Yup, I stumbled through a local yard today with my walkin' stick. I found four older PTs that had the throttle cable clip #4891313AA. That's what I was lookin' for as the clip had been recommended to me as a cable clearance and stabilizing fix under SOOO BIG's vanity cover. All this stuff for $6.00. I installed one and immediately there was just a bit of clearance. I couldn't find the bracket 156AB and I don't know just how much it'd help or where it goes. Having some extra clips I took the one with the most damage and ground off the base. After installing it to pull the throttle cable lower towards the cruise control cable I discovered I achieved a most adequate clearance and stabilizing of the cables under the vanity cover. See photos below.

I've inserted one photo of the "stuff" I got that's extra. Two throttle cable clips# 4891313AA, a rare set of three ball studs for the vanity cover and a curved cable sheath and double clip that might be useful in positioning cables. All first come first serve free if you can use 'em. You pay the shipping.

Suffering from "sever hydration" after the yard visit we decided the only solution was MARGARITAS at HOOTERS. After I was proper hydrated Sanya plopped on my lap for a photo.

But nice find with the clips.

All that's left of the stuff I mentioned above is one throttle cable clip 4891313AA (It's an earlier PT item that was used to re-position the throttle cable when a vanity cover is installed) And the set of three ball topped threaded studs 650642AA to hold the vanity cover in place. The first throttle cable clip is spoken for as are the cable curve sheath and double clip. All of these items will ship at $4.00 apiece in heavy envelopes.

I searched for the same items when I acquired SOOO BIG's vanity cover so I'm sure there's a few PTer's who could use this remaining stuff. No MARAGARITAS or HOOTER'S girls included!

Free, you pay shipping. PM me.
