Al,
I thought I had scored a source when I got a '63 Wagoneer a few months ago. Only the flapper under the hood is cable operated. The rest are vacuum. The J-trucks might be different. That leaves you with military cables or non marked ones. I too am holding out for the marked ones and just Zip tied my flappers so I have full air, full heat and 1/2 defrost.

A weird source might me aircraft. Every single engine plane I have ever been in had a knob marked "heat" on the heater cable. The airport in Tyler might have some used ones sitting around. Trade-A-Plane is probably the best place to look for used airplane stuff by the way.

This might be cheesy, but I've seen heater cables in the HELP! section at the parts places.

I was thinking about Barrman's idea. These don't say "heat" but some of them could be way cool...

I got my cables from Mill Supply ,part #54-025 . You can access the online catalog , choose step van parts then heater parts for Grumman then control cables . There are differant styles and lenghts . Knobs are just plain black .

JCW has the 'jeep' cables, so to does 'Q-T', if you just want cables. My heater came out of a Ford truck, only has cables for heat/defrost and temp, with a 3 speed fan motor.

I used two of those cables from the HELP section...lol...they aren't too strong in moving the flappers...and at $9.00 each, you'd be better off buying some good ones off Ebay or something that are for the M715.

The only source I know of is buyng an NOS heater kit and they come with...but that would be stupid expensive unless someone wanted the rest of the heater kit and not the cables....very unlikely...
