Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.There is no real adjustment point on the cable. You can remove the throttle control from the dash, lay it on something solid and smack the rivet area with a hammer to tighten it just be careful to not get it too tight or you won't be able to move it then. The control is riveted together and this is the only way that you can tighten it up to keep it from working back on you.Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.Please take a moment to rate your experience.
