    I put extensions similar to this on some of my cables. This allows more adjustments.

    Is this a project you are purchasing? It looks impressive.

    Interesting project, a '55 PA22/20 or earlier?

    Just to be clear, please answer the following:
    1) The project already had the extension connected to the flap handle, and when you installed a new 84.25" cable it was too long?

    2) If you shorten or remove the extension, is the cable length correct?

    3) Is everything at the other end of the cable the correct set up?


    Maybe the last guy made the cable too short, or bought a wrong length, etc, so added the extension?
    If it's not in the factory drawing and you can make it work with just your cable etc, that should be OK.

    Looks like an early PA20, brake pedals and control yoke pulleys. What if you remove the extension?

    Or, shorten it to fit. Whatever works.

    I think I need some help finding the drawing for the cables that fit a 1951 PA-20 Serial number 20-661, N5597H. I have the CD but am not familiar confident enough to definitively find the cable info without having some double check me. What I am seeing is that it should be 84 1/4, and I have one from a PA-22/20 i purchased for parts but it was to long.

    Thanks

    When I replace control cables I don't go by drawings. I make the cable to the length that enables the control meet specifications. If the old control cable worked correctly, I would match the length of that cable.

    I did what Stephen did. Measure the old cable and make a new one to match.
