Replacing cables on tandem with cable couplers
We have a Santana tandem with S&S couplers and cable couplers. I was going to replace my cables but could not get the cable coupler off the end of the cable. I removed the small set screw but the cable is mangled from being compressed by the screw so it won't come out of the coupler.
Has anyone found a good solution to this problem? I'm hoping that I have options other than buying new couplers!
Have you tried to cut the cable with about a couple inches left then unwind the cable. Eventually you should be able to unwind one wire and pull it out with a pair of pliers. Pull out one at a time until whole group comes loose. Also take the set screw out completely.
That worked for me recently.
Great idea. I'll give that a try. Thanks!
+1 That's exactly what I did when replacing the split cables on our Rans Screamer. Excellent advice. Mike
