Clutch problem.

Alright so recently I swapped my transmission to a t56 and put a brand new spec stage 2 clutch with ford racing throw out and pilot bearing. I'm on the side of the road right now because all of a sudden. It was hard to shift. I adjusted my aftermarket clutch cable and gave it more clutch.
The clutch is fully engaged and it won't shift. What's going on?

I hear that aftermarket clutch cables are a huge problem. Get an OEM Ford cable, or I believe the MM cables are just like them

So it's my clutch cable? Not my clutch? Is it because it's not engaging all the way? It was driving fine untill it kept getting harder to shift, until I couldn't shift anymore.

Clutch problem.

I mean I always had trouble putting it into gear. Maybe the cable isn't allowing for the clutch to engage all the way. Imma start there before I Take apart my k member and take off my headers just to get my tranny out.

Did you buy that cable or was it on the car when you got it?

I saved that picture so I can show dumbasses who don't believe me when I tell them OEM or MM or you might as well swap to an auto.

Wow. What a great example of this. Unfortunately at your expense. But this will help others not to buy

I bought this. Lasted about 2 months. It wasn't strong enough to handle the clutch lol.

But I bought a factory clutch cable and works beautifully.
