RV-8 Engine Control Cables freezing up
My mixture control has gotten to the point where I can barely get it to the ICO position without using two hands. RV-8, IO-360
There are a number of threads on this particular topic, but most of them are fairly old. I thought it was time to refresh the topic. It seems that the consensus of opinion on this is that the Vans Cables supplied with the kit are not designed for high heat environments. (best I can tell is that I Have a Vans CT Q-55 on my 850 hour airplane)
So, a poll, and two questions:
1.) has anyone found a cable that does not have the same issues as the green Vans cables? specifics and sources would be appreciated.
2.) Since I did not build this plane, do you have any tips on approaching the replacement of the cable? It looks like a lot of disassembly will be required.
