Does the tractor have a safety frame ? Some pictures would be beneficial.

You need to think outside the box (as they say) and look for somewhere that make/sell control cables.

The OP tells that the tractor is "cabless", with a double "s" at the end of the word (without cab). I have the feeling that most European countries (including UK) demanded safety cabs (or at least a safety frame) during the dates the 90-series tractors where produced. Countries like US, Canada, New Zeeland and African countries accepted new non cab tractors to be sold.

I have never seen a cabbed 11 or 1290/94 in New Zealand, not saying there is none but they definitely aren't very common

And I have never seen a non cab 90- or 94-series tractor in Finland. A safety cab on all agricultural tractors have been mandatory in this country started from somewhere around 1970 and in UK from 1976. The maximum allowed noise level was in these countries 90 db(A) for a start, but was then reduced to 85 db(A). The vast majority of 90- and 94-series tractors in Europe have therefor a full, noise insulated, cab with a floor, all separated from the tractor frame with 4 rubber cushions to get rid of vibrations generated by the engine and the transmission. In UK, Ireland and some other countries the so called Q-cab was used. This cab did not fulfilled some legislations in force in the Scandinavian countries, and northern Europe therefor used a cab made by Sekura and called S74. This cab was then replaced with a new and more modern cab to be fitted to the 90- and 94-series.. The cabs with a floor were fitted at the tractor assembly line. Maximum allowed vibrations for hands and whole body were also introduced. All this made it impossible to sell tractors without a full cab. There are still countries that do not demand a safety cab on ag tractors. Perhaps tractors overturning and drivers getting killed or badly injured or getting hearing problems is not an issue in these countries.

Thank you all for your replies and firstly I must apologise for the typing error it should have read CABLESS not CABLES and I did correct this later this tractor has most likely been an export model that either did not make the trip or was re-imported at some stage at the moment it is stripped down to chassis level so photos wont help much it was fitted with an after market roll bar when I purchased it but it also has the lower part of a O E type roll bar which comes to the top of the mudguards secured with large U bolts like on pre Q cab tractors but no top section would there be any records on serial numbers I wonder? any more thoughts would be appreciated
