    Don't know what to tell you, aftermarket part may be different or measured to different points. Or maybe its Chinese inches. The Ford master parts manual says what it says.

    thank you. I tried to find that part number and there is a cross number to something completely different like y-127 or something. Its detailed description says it is 19" though not 17 3/8.

    and yes the site has problems right now. tl;dr, we're obsolete like all the stuff we work on. Stuff is in progress to do something about it but in the meantime it is what it is unfortunately.

    something is funny with that throttle body stud. The OE ones are not bolted on like that, it should be welded. That doesn't look like a stock throttle body to me, might be worth a closer look to see if someone has done something strange.

    Make sure the ball stud isn't rusty and has a bit of grease in there. I thought I had a bad throttle cable on mine, rust was the issue.

    anyway the Ford master parts manual lists one part for all 86-89 5.0 cars, E8AZ-9A758-A at 17 3/8" long.

    There are others for earlier stuff and the 351 cars, none of them are 19". They range from 21 1/2" to 22 5/64" in length.

    started a topic 17 inch throttle cable

    17 inch throttle cable

    Broken one on this 89 5.0 base model makes it hard to drive and all sources say it is 19" but dealer claims there was a short lived 17 inch one that they cannot get. Is this a big lie or can anyone provide a source for shorter cable or is there easy mod to start using 19"? Thank you.
