  • RichardsMG created a new forum post in MGF/TF Pitstop
    I have an odd problem. My (RHD) TF suffers from sticky throttle cable. I tried lubricating the inner cable first, then learnt oil worsens the problem, because of the teflon inner lining reacting with the oil. I found CJJ's write-up on here and bought a brand-new RHD throttle cable SBB000280, which on delivery turned out to be SBB000280P, apparently some aftermarket version. When I installed the new cable it turned out to be too short. I took the new cable out again, put it on the garage floor next to the old cable and both inner and outer cable were roughly 5 centimeters shorter then the old one. Moreover, the adjusting nut on the engine side of the (new) cable is metal and doesn't fit the slot in the bracket on the throttle housing.

    When I took a closer look at the old cable I noticed a part number: "SBB000280 TR". I googled the part number with the TR extension and found a used cable on eBay labeled "SBB000280 TR". I asked the seller but he didn't know what TR meant.

    So, my question is: does the TR-bit mean I have a throttle cable that is longer than other RHD throttle cables are? Or was I just unlucky with the aftermarket throttle cable?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    Richard

    I'm Richard, new to the forum. I live in the Netherlands and own a 2003 RHD nightfire red MG TF 135 with hardtop. Have it for some years now. Had all the usual problems: water pouring out via the head gasket, water pouring in through the air intake on the firewall. To name but a few. But I still love it. Have always driven British cars in fact – if you discount the stick of rock pink Suzuki Alto I drove for a few months. First car was a Mini 1275 GT, followed by a Vauxhall Viva, a Commer Paralanian, Humber Sceptre Mk III, a few Austin Maxi's, a few Rovers, a few Land Rovers and Jaguars. Still with me are a 1964 109" Land Rover Series 2a, a 1967 Jaguar 420 and the MG.
