Re: [Chrysler300] 1960 300F hood release cable

A place called control
Cables in California makes many kinds of cables . The problem with the F in my experience is the cable fatigues and snaps at the T handle joint , which T then comes off in your hand. It is wire as you say . I fixed one by getting rid of crimp part at that joint by cutting and grinding , and getting old broken end out , then drilled in deeper with very small drill and tinned the (old) pull wire and soldered it in about 1/2 "  
Since then have used California cable stranded pull wire and matching lined housing ( looks the same outside) for this kind of thing , but not specifically for an F hood . Not sure solder would take to stranded but might lock it in anyway due to rough texture . Putting it back like it was , is probably ok , too .  Usually enough rope at hood end to do this repair with some repositioning .
Hope this info helps . Be sure screw at hood end very tight .

Hi All:

I am in need of a hood release cable for my 300F.  I can get by with a 7-foot length (84"). of 3/16" O.D. wound steel flexible jack with 1/16" O.D. steel cable if separate parts are available.  Better yet would be an exact replica with handle, jacket and cable.  Thanks for checking.
