Default Cherokee 140 Carb Heat Cable Issue

Hello,

I have a Cherokee 140, and I think the carb heat cable is not connected
to the handle on the pannel correctly. I have a handle that moves up
and down (not push/pull). Currently the cable was put through the
whole on the back of the lever and bent around it. Shouldn't their be
a connection something like their is on the airbox handle side of the
cable?

Thanks,
Scott Taylor

The cockpit end of the cable should have a threaded end, the cable end
should be threaded into a clevis and attached to the lever with a screw,
castellated nut and cotter pin.

Sounds like the cable end broke and was jury-rigged.
