TR4/4A Early TR4 Choke Cable Routing

This evening I took a break from the "Budget Paint Job" and decided to have a go at a "just job".

The car had been fitted with Strombergs by the P.O. prior to it being sent to the barn. The choke cable was shorter than normal and ran to what looks like a homemade mount riveted to the lower dash support rail to the left of the passenger footwell. I obtained an original cable and want to install it properly to the right of the ignition switch. When I fitted it, there is a tight bend that it has to make to go around the heater box before coming out of a firewall hole near to the water lines into the heater. So:
- is that the correct routing? or
- should it run down through the passenger footwell and out one of the lower firewall holes? or
- does it take another route?

Any pics of it around the heater box and through the firewall would be appreciated; I did a search and came up blank.

Thanks in advance.

Ian:

Here is a picture of where the choke cable comes out on my '62 TR4.

This should get you under the heater box and straight at the carbs.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the pic. Does anything go through the hole above the heater water hoses?
