help with heater control cable/clamp on 1967 coupe

I am trying to reattach 2 of the 3 heater cables to the back of the heater control assembly. It seems that the Heater Cable Clamps that I purchased are not the same as the original clamp that has broken off allowing the cables to pull free. The after market clamp is not close to the same as original yet each site I have researched provides the same clamp. Very minor problem I know but frustrating. Any help is appreciated. BTW it's a 67 coupe w 60k original miles, all stock. My grandfather is the original and only owner until it founds its way into my garage. thanks from San Diego. Terry

I just replaced this clamp about a week ago.

Is this the clamp you're referring to?

And exactly where on the car are you needing to put the clamp?

My original clamp was broken, and while not like this style, this clamp still fit perfectly in its place. I can take a picture for you.

Thanks for the reply Lizer. Yes those are the clamps I ordered but I need (and cant find) the plastic piece thats fits over all 3 cables (attached w 3 screws) just before the cables attach to the control lever posts. The clamp actualy attaches to the assembly itself.

I can't figure out what you're referring to. I was just digging around in there the other day, too. Are the cables different colors? The cable I am thinking of is the big thermostat cable.

3 cables all the same color and size. 1 each for the heater control, temp control, and defrost control I am going to try and attach a pic. Thanks again.

Heater control cable/clamp

The heater cables should come as an assembly of 3 cables of different lengths and the end that connects to the heater controls are held together with a clamp on all three cables and use 2 screws to hold the cable to the control. The clamp that you have shown is to anchor the cable at the heater box on the appropriate lever. The below listed part is from CJ Pony which you need to get for the proper cable kit and also insure that you have 3 of the single clamps if they are not already attached to the heater levers.

Thanks for the help. So if I understand correctly. I need the "kit" which comes with all 3 cables AND the single clamp that attaches the cables properly to the assembly itself at the dash? In addition, I need 3 single clamps to properly attach the other end of the cables near the heater box?

You will need the 3 cable kit and screws if you don't have them. You might want to check at the heater box to see if the single cable clamps are on the mounting bracket for each cable. The looped cable will fit over a lever on the heater box and you should be able to tell which cable fits where because the cables are different lengths. You would then use the single cable clamp on the the appropriate mounting bracket. Hope this helps. I would send you a picture but my car is in storage for the winter and not easily accessible.:kooky:

Thanks for all of the help. I found a cable kit at WCCC West Coast Classic Cougar that has the piece/clamp I was referring to as part of the kit. Cost $28. Should not be too difficult to run cables really easy when you remove glovebox. Simple 3 screws.

Hi all. I need to replace the cables as 2 of them have pulled out of the ends (heater box ends) so moving the controls doesn't move the flaps to divert air. It's just started Winter here in Australia so it would be nice to get some warm air blowing.
Do I only need to remove the glovebox to get to the heater box ends of the cables/clamps? Surely I won't need to drop the heater box to get to the contol lever behind it!

Also, the heater fan doesn't work on setting 1, only on 2 & 3, which I presume is the heater resistor. Before I pull half the dash apart looking - Does the resistor sit behind the dash plate where the fan speed switch is? On one of my Aussie built cars the resistor was accessed in the plenum chamber from outside the car below the windscreen, not under the dash anywhere ! Who would have thought!
Thanks
Ken

You don't need to drop the heater box at all, just remove the glovebox door. You will find the cable attachments on top of the box. The 3rd, shorter cable is just to the right of and above the gas pedal. Good luck
