Notchy MGW Shifter and Super Stiff King Cobra Clutch

I was told that the cable is split at the end, resulting in me having to press extremely hard on the clutch, and weird shifting:

1-2 is very notchy and difficult, 2-3 isn't to bad, 3-4 is smooth as hell, 4-5 is similar to 1-2. reverse... ugh hard.

And this is with an MGW Shifter...
How could I go about fixing that? Anyway to fix that without having to buy a whole new cable?

actually, your cable liner is unwinding on the inside making it difficult to push in, i think you need a new cable and a firewall adjuster, i may be able to make it easier to push in with just a simple adjustment under the car.

When would be a good time to stop by? Think you could show me how to do some of the simple things? Also, I REALLY need to get my steering problem fixed.... badly.

Rob thinks its the Steering Rack/Column.... few other people think its a bushing. Me... I have no clue. Just I can turn it about 45 degrees left and right and get no response.

Re: Notchy MGW Shifter and Super Stiff King Cobra Clutch

Ugh...Didn't we already answer these questions this past weekend?

And, for those searching later, it is not the MGW that is notchy, it is the pile o turd cable he has on there which was discussed this weekend...and restated in this thread by the person that discovered the problem.

As for the steering, I read once upon a time that there is some rubber in there....in fact, here is a quote for you...and the solution to your problem

Quote:
You can sharpen your Mustang’s steering response with this solid steering shaft assembly. With your stock steering shaft, motion is lost due to the flexing of the rubber rag-joint. This flexing usually feels like play in the steering wheel (you can move the steering wheel without the car changing direction). The factory joints are replaced with race-quality needle-bearing U-joints, resulting in a dramatic improvement in steering response.
And here is the link to the part to fix it if you went aftermarket, or you can find another stock steering shaft.

Re: Notchy MGW Shifter and Super Stiff King Cobra Clutch

ive never tackled the steering problem but i trust robs input, i think thats going to be the issue. im still trying to find out why they put the duct tape mod on the quadrant

im diagnosing it as the cable because my steeda cable did that to me so i put a 04 cobra cable and used the steeda quadrant and firewall adjuster and its been butter ever since.the pressure from the performance clutches make the metal liner on the inside to start to stretch, oem is the best cable on the market.

you and kyle should just call rob "DADDY" lmao
