The '95 TCS unit's throttle cable exits from the nylon cable housing which is held by the steel bracket bolted to the throttle body. It(the cable) spans the space to the TCS "arm" which protrudes from the throttle body and attaches to one of the two holes in the "arm". On the TSC throttle body that I have the cable attaches to the second hole meaning the hole closest to the throttle body. Since the cable must be longer for mating up with this hole you should have enough cable to attach another "end/stop" so that the closer hole is utilized and the cable has some adjustment along its length to attach to said stop. At rest (meaning the motor is off) the distance is such that there is no tension but no slack either on the cable between the nylon housing stop and the receiving TCS arm. I can send you a picture on Sunday. I would suggest a bicycle shop for a brake or gear cable "stop". The cable stop that I am thinking of is one for the old style cantilever mountain bike brakes. There are similar ones for Road Bikes as well. It's a speciality fastener that allows the cable to go through the shaft of the fastener and then be clamped down using a nut and washer. In this case the cable would go through the shaft and the end of the shaft, which is threaded, would be put through the hole in the TCS "arm" and then the nut would be used to crimp down on both the arm and the cable. If the cable is too short add length to the arm or, using bicycle parts, add a cable to your existing cable. I'm pretty sure that something can be fabricated to fix this for just a few dollars. If you have an issue finding one at the local bike shop I probably have one laying around here...I use to be a rep for a bicycle manufacture.
