There are a number of cables on a Daihatsu Hijet one of which controls the throttle allowing the engine to increase and decrease acceleration. The Clutch cable pulls the Clutch plate allowing the clutch disc to spin on its own so that the Daihatsu Hijet mini truck does not move when the truck is parked with the engine running. There are two shift cables. One that allows forward and rear movement of the shifter for switching from first to second gears. The second shift cable is called the side to side shift cable. This cable allows the shifter to move from left to right so that the forward/reverse cable can operate the third to fourth gears and the reverse gear. The Speedometer cable tranfers the speed inside the transmission to the speedometer on the dash.
