It's not part of the cable, it is the speed driven gear 'holder'. I did chop the threads off of it.Oh, you mean the basic part is actually part of the cable and you only put in a pipe plug. Now that's easier than I thought, this should be a cinch. I was talking about the diameter of the whole part not the diameter of the pipe plug. I have not looked at that connection in such a long time I don't remember what it looks like. That's why my previous comment was about a welded nut because I was assuming that it screwed on.
