Xmas day help needed

First Merry Christmas to all!

Doing last minute work on my bike yesterday before driving it out of state to visit family. 90% finished and ran into a problem last night (after HF already closed), can't get the throttle cable back on. Here is what I need to borrow from someone in the area today. Commonly called hemostats, someone working in health care is likely to have a set. Other recreational uses for them also. Length could be a little shorter ~8-9" and no bend on end would probably still work. PM or call (ate-three-too)7-zero-four-too-7-five-nine

Needle nose are too big. Linkage is between carbs 2 and 3. Maybe 3/8" space to work with. Barely just enough room for cable end to clear. Even if not locking or curved I could probably make it work, the slimness of the pliers is the critical thing.

Teeth preferred but either would work. Big thanks for the response. I'm hoping to find closer than League City but if no other response before noon I'll send a PM and hope you're still around.

They make a set of picks with different ends that can be useful'. Maybe try to bend a coathanger at the end so you can pull cable......just a thought

Wow this idea might work! Have someone pulling cable from underneath with hanger until cable aligns into slot while I keep cable end half seated into linkage cutout. Hopefully will pop in with some manipulation. Just need to call a helper for an extra set of hands.

Thanks, I'll post back.

While waiting for my helper to show up I got a call back from a riding buddy only 2 miles away. Now I've got needed hemostats and a helper so my problem solved.

Thanks to all for your replies and help. Merry Christmas.
