    My pedestal mounted throttle for the Universal 18 is creeping back and not staying put. This is a recent occurrence. I'm looking for the cable clamp which I've read is the culprit. But I can't find it. As you know space is tight on a diesel C27 - where to look?

    Start at the engine end and search along the path to the cockpit.

    Is it an Edson pedestal?

    Yes it's an edson pedestal, and thanks kloudie1. That's exactly what I needed. I was looking at the engine end of the cable.
