My cable broke today after 45 years, cheap thing!
Anyone have an extra?

:lol: That happened to me in 1976, while my car was parked and disabled at the curb. I was changing plugs and points and had to run inside to get something, so I closed the hood. When I got back and tried to open the hood, the cable snapped and pulled right out in my hand. The distributor cap being off the car, I couldn't drive it anywhere for help. I had to lay down under the car with my legs in the street and reach a pair of pliers up past the engine block to reach the stub of cable and pull it downward. Took an hour to reach it and nearly 5 minutes to retract my arm after the hood popped open. :oops:
I'm fairly sure Vinny Bedini would have one. 860/355/182nine.
