IMHO ...........the people that see cable issues are those that don't keep the valves clean which causes the cables to bend over backwards (at the servo end / on cold start up) and start kinking, this eventually breaks em. Issue is more common in super cold weather.
Best way to prevent it is to check oil consumption / adjust as required / run quality oil / clean your valves on a regular basis. Easy way to check n see if they cleaning is to pull off the cables at the servo end (engine dead nuts cold) and pull the cable out then release, if it goes backquickly with a noticeable clunk, yer good to go, if no noise and or it goes back in slowly yer overdue to clean them.
