Now attach the cable to the lever.
Now thread the barrel screw nut onto the barrel screw and insert the barrel screw into the brake lever.
On the other end of the cable thread the cable through the barrel screw mounted on the throttle bracket.
Disconnect the cruise control cable from the cable lever.
Get your plexi-glass bracket and attach the cable to the bolted end. You want to pull as much cable through as possible so there is little to no slack when the plexi bracket is attached to the throttle lever (cruise control) pin. At the same time your trying to take up any slack ensure that your not pulling on the lever causing an increased idle thus increasing your idle gas consumption.
After setting the proper cable length attach the plexi bracket to the throttle lever. For fine tuning unscrew the barrel screw from the throttle bracket. At the point of tension on the throttle lever screw the barrel back in 1/8 turn. Tighten the barrel screw nuts against the throttle bracket on both sides. Now attach the lock washer to the pin.some shaving of the plexi bracket will be needed to allow room for the lock washer
With this complete reassemble the air intake tubing.
After everything is reassembled you will need to start the vehicle. Make any final tension adjusting with the barrel screw on the brake lever.
Final step is to JB Weld the cable housing to the barrel screw in at the brake lever.If it's necessary to make any more tensioning adjustments this will have to be done at the throttle bracket barrel screw.

I made the throttle lever bracket (lower right corner of pict) from a piece of 3/16" plexi-glass 2.75" X 1".
