After cable installation, move the temperature knob quickly from full cold to full hot position. At about two-thirds control travel, additional effort may be required to complete the adjustment. During adjustment, a -click'' may be heard as the cable end is brought into proper position. The cable is now set and should provide uniform effort from full cold to full hot and back with audible temperature valve stop contact upon reaching these positions. If not, remove the cable end from the actuator and turn the eyelet until the cable end is flush with the end of the eyelet. Reinstall, then adjust the cable.
