Cables needed

Hi Everyone,
We own a 1972 pace arrow (dodge chassis) 21 ft class a motorhome. 440 with an auto tranny. (shift lever is to the left of driver) Last year coming back from disneyland, I had a front driver side blowout. The wheel grabbed the shift cable and brake cable and wound it up around the wheel. i am have a hard time finding the 2 cables. Any referrals? Thank you so much in advance.

Welcome to iRV2

Does the shift cable , on the transmission end , go into the transmission to connect to the valve body , or is it connected to an external lever, beside the kick down linkage ?
Is the emergency brake ratchet operated by a foot pedal or a hand lever ?
Is the emergency brake attached to the vehicles rear brakes , with a an adjuster and two cables to the rear drums; or an assembly mounted to the transmission , with it's own brake drum at the front of the drive shaft ?
Over the years of production Dodge used both types of set ups.

Charlie,

I specialize in repairing things for which no parts are available.
There is a very good chance that nothing OE is available.
Fortunately, there is a company called Teleflex that can almost always provide (they may have to make it as a special) control cables.

Assuming you are west coast, you could start by working though a marine supplier. They will have to know what the ends of both are like, the travel required and the length of both the core and the jacket.

You might also contact the Travco group. They were all on Dodge chassis and they may have a lead for you.

Frank
