	Sorry im a couple of days responding to this enthusists need.Ive been 
busy trying  to keep my 8th grade science students from "flushing" 
their grades this last month of the school year.
	When the solid steel wire for my Haigh tail wheel release broke on my 
S1S I went to a local auto parts wharehouse and purchased a cable and 
housing assy and just removed the .070 wire and "T" handle and 
inserted it into the original housing.The numbers are as follows;

					Dorman products inc.
					choke control assy
					PN 100-025
	I didnt have an electrical system and I used the same assy on the 
glider tow release I installed so that I could prop it myself.This 
unit also has a 1/4 turn to lock feature.Dorman makes a lot of 
hardware items for the auto repair industry but you will have to find 
an auto parts store that carries some hardware stuff.Hope this helps.
