Fantastic work as always Ray! What type of fittings do you use on your cables? They look like a compression type fitting and I was wondering where you get them and what kind of selection there might be of different types.

Gotcha, Ray. Didn't realize the part I 'modded' was original. Sounds like you have done a lot of homework, so carry on. Awesome as always!

Those are fittings that I got off ebay a long time ago and I don't know who the manufacture is.
They are compression fittings.
The end un-screws and is slid over the end of the cable.
The end of the cable is then twisted a little to un-ravel it some.
There is a small cone shaped piece that has gripping ridges around it that is then pushed into the center of the cable.
When the end is screwed back into the clevis, the cone piece is forced into the end of the cable and locks it in place.
