Short distance tow in Melbourne??
« Started on: 17-Mar-18, 11:14 »
Snapped a throttle cable on the way home, 4km from my place Doh
I don't have access to a car with a towbar at the moment and pals who might help aren't available. Just wondering if anybody here knew a towie within the vicinity of Pascoe Vale who wouldn't charge me an arm and a leg.

Geez mate you must have snapped both cables. Can you jury rig something? Sorry I am not nearby but best wishes!

Thanks Ace :)
The pull cable broke right at the top and then the push one detached from the carb somehow... might be a break in that one somewhere too. It's on a busy road so it's a bit tricky to work on there!
I've managed to corner a mate to help and I found a rental trailer for $25 so that's a pretty good outcome.

For the record, George at Ring Road Rentals is very accommodating if anyone's after trailer rental:
