I need help finding a throttle pressure cable. My auto alfetta has been sitting for a little bit and I want to get it going. I’m not exactly sure what I can do to fix this kind of problem on a damaged cable, but I figured I’d get on here and ask around.. if anyone has advice I’d really appreciate it. All I need is the kickdown-cable. 🙁

Yes try the bike shop. They have the equip to cut and attach the ends to whatever.
BUT don't tell them it is for a fancy I-Talian car. My price was $4 for a throttle cable fix, told them it was for an Alfa, price went up to $34 !!

Look for a clutch cable off of a motorcycle, they are more heavy duty than a bicycle one. Some hardware stores have cable by the roll.

How long is the cable?

I agree that you should try to find a motorcycle shop and see if they can make a cable using your fittings.

Our latest Lemons Rally project car is a Rover P6 3500 with auto trans, and I rigged up a kick down cable and linkage using a Lokar kit for a Chevy, and the actual cable was a hood release cable from a BMW E38 7-series that I found at my shop.

Is your Alfetta a fuel injected USA version? That doesn't look like any Alfetta cable I've seen. The SPICA FI cable is much shorter. If that's the case, I have a spare.

Not many of us HAVE seen that cable. It's the throttle valve cable for an auto trans.
I wonder if Larry at APES has one...

If you are near a major city there should be a company that makes cables. I had a handbrake cable made up for my '67 Giulia in Sydney... i took my old one in, they reused original fittings on a modern cable, works perfectly. Maybe ring up a local race / performance workshop, they should be able to put you onto someone.
