On early production Corvettes, difficulty may be experienced in closing the ventilator valves. This could be due to the loosening of the steel tubing at the crimped area of the control cables.
New cable assemblies which incorporate larger crimping areas, entered production approximately 1-4-65.
If the problem is encountered, it can be resolved by replacing the original control cable with the new style cable available for service as listed below.
|New Cable||Old Cable||Usage|
|3874729-30||3857603-4||Cowl Air Vent Control (Exc. A/Cond.)|
|3874732||3857606||Cowl Air Vent Control (With A/Cond.)|
|387431||3857605||Roof Vent Valve Control (Exc. A/Cond.)|
|387433||3857607||Roof Vent Valve Control (With A/Cond.)|
