cable compatability

Post  piston 197 on Sat Jan 31, 2015 8:07 am

The cable free lengths and adjusters and nipples are the same , but the cruiser 80 cable is 8" longer overall, so it will work o.k. ,but you may have to be creative with the routing to lose the extra 8 inches, or it could even be shortened by removing one nipple , shortening the inner and outer and re-soldering the nipple back on ?

Ebay item 201276751876 appears to be the correct item. FB 87 clutch cables frequently appear on ebay, this one has the FB green outer. It is always a good idea to thoroughly lubricate the cable before fitting.

Can confirm above post TG742 is the Romac coding for the Falcon 87 1960/66 ( all years of manufacture) and the "G" in the number coding denotes green cable outer

I have used the universal cables advertised on eBay many times. They come with open ends and a selection of nipples. Inner and outer can be cut to required length and end soldered to suit. They are very good.

Thank you all for your input John Thanks for telling us about the different cable length,Kev I had looked at the universal cables and was thinking of them if there was no joy for a NOS and thanks Sandy for pointing out the cable for my model will keep a eye on this one.

J.J. Cables (01926-651470) will make up cables using an old one as a pattern, but they no longer have the correct FB green outer sheathing in stock.
