Adjustable quadrant cable

Hey guys,
I'm new here. I was wondering if anyone could help with an issue that I'm having with my tranny? I have a '93 gt 5.0 efi car that is set up nice mechanical wise. I bought the car a few months back and haven't really got to step in it but only a couple of times. I've noticed that at higher rpm's , the tranny grinds a bit going into every gear. It has an adjustable quadrant cable on it, and I was told that was the problem, that I need to adjust the cable. I've never done this, and I was looking for some advise.

Re: Adjustable quadrant cable

Get under the car ,there's a nut at the end of the clutch cable where it goes through the clutch fork , loosin' the nut till there's no tension , then snug it up till there's tension on it , then tighten it up a few turns , shouldn't take more then a few turns ...... if your still having the grinding issue after that , then you probably have Tranny issues ,most likely syncro's are bad

If the syncronizers were bad, wouldn't it grind when shifting it normal?
