[Healeys] Choke cable

Hi Fred:


I did remove the heater box to make the job replacing the choke cable easier last year.  However, I did not replace the heater box because I have no need for it in South Florida.  Although I remember taking it out 30 years ago and did get it back in after a time when I lived in Chicago by standing on my head.

Subject: [Healeys] Choke cable




Temps are the upper 60's today so I went to the garage to take the BJ8 out for a run.  I pulled the choke knob and the entire choke assembly came out of the dash.  I do mean the entire assembly, the knob as well as the cable sheath came out of the dash.  The sheath disconnected from the choke bracket on the fire wall.  So here I am, a beautiful day and no choke to start the car with!  I've never had this happen before.


This situation is not one of the items on my to-do-list!  I don't need more stuff to do.  I tried looking under the dash to see the hole through the firewall but it appears that the hole is above and or behind the back of the heater.  I cannot see daylight through the firewall hole.  Does anyone have ideas or suggestions on how to put the choke assembly back through the dash and fire wall without removing the entire dash?  Do I have to actually remove the heater box to put the choke back in the car?
