Clutch cable

I have a 93 stang and every year I've had to replace the cable I've tried heavy duty , adjustable and every year it snaps or stretches out . I also had the transmission rebuilt 1 1/2 ago and it's not the throw out bearing so what do I do

the best cable is a factory one. very common problem with aftermarket cables breaking and stretching. i think maximum motorsports uses oem cable. try them.

Well Scott did you ever fix the clutch cable issue?

How many miles on your motor?

What kind of oil gauge are you using?

Funny thing is he started this thread about clutch cable 2 years ago.


Never posted the outcome.


Now starts a new thread on his old thread and hijacks his own thread.

Sorry not really a computer guy . So it turns out my ground wire from the engine was off and grounding out on my clutch cable which was heating it up then cooling off making it brittle and my headers were melting the sheathing and sticking to the cable and in the end I crushed my fire wall from the pressure.

What does it read psi when warm at idle?


Old motor kinda tired maybe high teens.
low 20's to low 30's is ok for a used motor.


Also depends on your oil weight.

Is it burning oil?

Smoking a little?

What weight of oil are you using?

You could try something heavier.

Also a compression and leak down test will explain some.
