clutch cable adjustment

Ok i replaced my clutch a couple months back and am wondering is there any way I can relax the cable because with the new clutch I will push the pedal 4-5 inches and it is fully engaged and can't really feather it too easily like with the old clutch when i could go all the way to the floor and let up a few inches to engage the clutch. Idk so I'm just wondering. It's a 89 gt 5.0

Re: clutch cable adjustment

if is an OEM quadrant lift up on the petal from the underside, it should re-adjust. Its better to have full engagement rather than it having to go to the floor to go into neutral as you dont know if its fully in neutral etc when its all the way in to shift.

Ya I'm just worried that the way it is pressing to the floor when i am at a stop that i may break that knob on bell housing where that yoke that presses against the clutch sits.

You should be fine doing what spec said. If your to worried about it then you should probably invest in an aftermarket quadrant and firewall adjuster. Then you can fine tune the cable where ever you need

Re: clutch cable adjustment

keep the OEM cable, aftermarket cables SUCK. A firewall adjuster and quadrent help you get the engagement point where you want but... there is no spring so the petal flops around.

Also look at maximum motosports they have a petal height adjuster kit (modifies the bump stop)

If I shift really hard and force my clutch in fast it will unadjust.... but I dont really do that so I have been ok so far.

+1 and if you do replace the cable the maximum motorsport adjustable cable kit uses an OEM cable.
