Danny the limit travel bolt are not unique to yours. Eshelman used them on many items. My Adult and Child Sport cars have them. My 1956 tractor with cable steering doesn't but a 1955 with with steering linkage does. Go figure.  I see Harbor Freight has wire cable ends for 5/32 cable if someone needs for their cable steering. I just used cable clamps. I turned the front end alignment nut so the tires toed  all the way out then pulled the cable as tight as I could with the steering wheel and wheels in straight position, attached cable clamps and finally adjusted the front end alignment to finish tightening the cables. I was lucky to get it on the 1st try. The steering is very tight no play at all. Will see how long it stays that way. 003.JPG 005.JPG

Jeff, I wondered about that also.


When I did the 1956, I looked in the paper McMaster-Carr catalog, and they had a ready made cable that was the right length.  I had to thread the yokes.  The picture I posted above is the cable that was on it when we got it.
