Re: Removing handle

Help may be on the way. Taking a hint from a previous posting, I just Googled the thing and found a company that sells identical items. I've just e-mailed them.

This will be easy on the one in the photo, not so easy on the other T handle still installed !

I've also e-mailed Westerbeak ! Can't mail Hinterhoeller - out of business !

No names on the handle or the tubing.

Shylock - where are you ?!
So how did it get in or out of the original hole it was in?

Re: Removing handle

I had 2 of those as shut-offs on a pair of Cats. The inner cable was inserted into that hollow shaft and locked with a grub screw that is normally concealed down in the console mounted guide tube. Disconnect from engine end, remove any cable stop-nuts, and it should come out of the console tube, and expose the grub screw.

I have received from the gnome, instructions for installing one of these items. You basically push the cylinder tube part through the console, up to where you want it, governed by the underneath nut on the cylinder, screw on the top nut on the top of the console, AND THEN PUT ON THE HANDLE, as the final action.

Of course, the installation guide does not tell you how to put on the handle, i.e. screw or push !

I e-mailed the gnome further questions and am now waiting for him to get off his alter and answer !!

Re: Removing Handle

When all else fails get the hammer.

If the "last" act of installation is to "snap" the handle on there must be an internal snap ring in the handle and a "waist" on the the push/pull shaft.

If the bluestocking's grub screw idea doesn't pan out I would be trying to figure out an Archimedes solution - i.e. a way to apply lot's of leverage to the underside lip of the handle. If it is a snap ring at some point the handle will launch off into space.

tire iron type device (pry lever) claw hammer etc.

Thanks for keeping a sense of humor. The forest-master has granted you 3 extra patience points.

Re: Removing Handle

Actually when all else fails, I prefer the dremel drill with a circular cutting disk. It's more surgical !

At any rate the mystery is solved. I cut the handle as I described above and got:

the plastic handle: a small piece of a metal cylinder that has barbs on the outside and a screw thread on the inside, a nut.

So obviously the T handle is manufactured with the metal cylinder inside it. This explains why I could twist the handle around and around and make no progress: it was just twisting around the barbs.

I think it would have been VERY difficult to have popped the handle off the metal cylinder as the latter has the barbs.

As it happened, the metal piece was so corroded I couldn't undo it from the rod, so I had to cut that as well.

At any rate, I have moved the cable to the hole I want it in. Now all I need is a new T handle ! From where ???? !

Thanks for all the responses. Hope we've all learnt something !

Re: Removing Handle

It appears to have a jam nut on it...? I would think it was threaded. all of mine have been threaded, but they were chrome not plastic.

Re: Removing Handle

It looks like it could be a Teleflex CC343XX series cable.
Here is a link to the instruction manual.
http://www.seastarsolutions.com/wp-c...055000-002.pdf

I think it was supposed to unscrew but the male threaded end of the cable became one with the female threads inside the insert. Trying to unscrew it caused the insert to spin in the plastic.

If you need a new cable, I'd love the chance to quote you.

Yup - That "barbed" piece was supposed to be "captive" in the handle and handle was not supposed to spin inside the barbed bit. In hindsight one might have squeezed the handle shaft in a vice or jaws and unscrewed the shaft but hindsight is 20/20.

You may be able to source a handle from a manufacturer.

This may not be the droid you are looking for but 10 minutes with google found this - BTW at 34 bucks you may just want a whole new cable.

Re: Removing Handle

Angle grinder with a cut off wheel. It's no good to you the way it is.

Re: Removing Handle

After I had cut the handle off, being careful not to cut into the rod's thread as much as possible, I took the cable out of it's old hole (now covered with an acrorn nut) and placed it into the new hole. I bought a bronze knob from Home Depot for $3.39, drilled it out a bit (13/64") and then tapped it to the same thread on the rod. Screwed it on, and it works fine.

Thanks for being an audience - you helped me find my own way !

See the photos.
