Hi everyone! I have an 88 xlt 2.6L v6. I need to know if anyone knows the size of the throttle cable or accelerator cable as mine has snapped and I can't find anyone who has a replacement.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I've put a number of later 4.0 throttle cables in my 1st gen trucks. I also had an 89 2.9 installed in both of them (same engine playing musical cars) that hooked up to the older cables just fine, so I can't for the life of me see why a cable for an 89-92 2.9L wouldn't fit an 86-88 2.9L.

I figured it pry would seeing as how at the basic level 89-92 was basically the same as pre 88, but figured id check.
