Yes Crit, I plan on getting a heat sleeve for the potion of the cable that runs past the down pipe and the turbo. The old cable was a little crispy there.

I ran the entire length of our new heat rated throttle cable through a piece of fuel line and made sure it is double secure whre it runs in the area of the turbo.

Laminated high-temp aluminized fabric sleeves to protect your wires and hoses.


The new lamination of a high-temperature fabric to a highly-reflective foil is the makeup of Thermo-Sleeve, which provides protection from radiant heat for hoses and wires.

Thermo-Sleeve's ultra light-weight construction provides more insulating than traditional bulky rubber-coated fiberglass. The aluminized sleeving reflects over 90% of radiant heat, and is fireproof and oil resistant. The Thermo-Sleeve can handle conductive heat temperatures of 750º F and radiant heat temperatures up to 2000º F.

Thermo-Sleeve is packaged in 3 or 12-foot lengths, and is sold in five different inside diameter sizes. Thermo-Sleeve is available in custom lengths for special applications. Typical applications include brake, fuel,oil and a/c lines.



A Highly reflective mylar foil with a Velcro closure to provide maximum protection for wires and hoses.



Thermo-Tec's new Express Sleeves are just exactly what our customers have been looking for. The new easy to use sleeving is a combination of a high temperature insulation material to a highly reflective mylar foil with a Velcro closure. The sleeving is designed to provide maximum protection for wires, hoses, and cables from the very damaging effect of radiant heat with an easy application. Simply pull apart the material, wrap around the wire, and re-close the sleeving. Express Sleeves reflect over 90% of radiant heat, is fireproof and fire resistant, and just looks good. Express Sleeves come in 1 1/2" diameter in 3', 12', and 50' lengths.

The mylar foil can be effective with radiant heat up to 2000º F and 400ºF for conductive heat.



Protective barrier for extreme heat exposure. Excellent thermal and abrasion resistance.




This new silicone-coated fiberglass fire sleeving is designed to protect wires, cables and hoses from high-temperature exposure, liquid spills and occasional exposure to flame.

The high-quality sleeving is made in the U.S.A. from braided fiberglass and coated with a compound silicone rubber. It is capable of continuous protection to 500ºF and short-term exposure thru 2200ºF.

Available in two colors, silver and black; three diameters, 1/2 in., 3/4 in. and 1 in; and three lengths, 3 ft., 10 ft. and 50 ft.

New cable installed and test driven. Wow what a difference. Full throttle is much easier to attain and cruise works much better. The bus will hold 65 on the cruise easily-it would barely hold 58 before.

Steve is the guy I deal with most of the time. He will need the old cable to send out and have it replicated. Valley has also sourced a power steering pump, turbo, and injectors for me. Prices were always reasonable.

Is Valley Truck Parts the place with the Jeep on a Pole along I-94?

That name sure sounds familiar.

Climbed out of those mountains and didnt burn any more cables. I forgot wrap the down tube from the turbo with eshaust wrap.

There was an error when I clicked on that link for the heat sleeves. Maybe the company reworked there website. Here's the new link, in case anyone needs it:

Hoping this is the fix I need. Thanks for the info!

NOTE; Links are are fixed now.
