Fitting the throttle cable

Naturally where possible the Exocet will use the donor components, no need to buy anything we don't need and a simple item like a cable can cause major headaches if the end falls off or you get the wrong length one made.
So lets stick with the reliable MX5 cable, BUT it has a square fitting for the bulkhead. Ouch!
If you can't find a square drill then you will need a round one and a square file.
Drill first with a 12 mm drill.

Then open out and provide the notches as shown to match the plastic fitting on the cable, job done, it even has a rubber cushion and substantial stop bolt for those with a heavy right foot.
