HELP!! 1986 TRX 350 Decompression Cable!!

I have most of a 1986 TRX 350,I got it running & moving, Need some help with a part: Name & where I can acquire one!! The Decompression cable is attached at one end( the connector end) The other end is hanging free over the head! Kids at the Honda shop( on the computer) Say it needs a Lifter receiver?? But they cant get one!! Dunno, foresure if that's what its called, or where I can find one!!

It sounds like the decompression lever and lifter assembly is missing from the rocker cover? Number 6 on the parts fiche:

Is your rocker cover missing these parts? Or has the cover been replaced with an 88 & 89 rocker cover, that has a hand operated decomp lever rather than a cable?

You'll probably have to buy a used 86 or 87 TRX350/TRX350D rocker cover to rob those parts (lifter, return spring and seal) from. Someone on eBay might one... call Jake at and ask him if they have one.

Are the cam journals in the head and cover still good? Cam lobes and rockers arm heels still good?

If you read back up the page you'll see that the decomp lifter is missing @shadetree. There is a big hole in the rocker cover begging to be plugged with something other than his right thumb. :)
I imagine that'll help! Still need the spring, dowel pin and possibly the oil seal? The dowel pin and seal are still available new, but the spring shows not.
