More bad luck

My tire blew out on saturday, new one should be in tomorrow or wednesday.....On my way home from work today my clutch cable broke and it was a heavy duty adjustable cable! A piece came flying in through the fire wall.....i just can't catch a break right now....i think it's time for a beer :booze:

Re: More bad luck

That sucks right there. Word of advice, avoid the adjustable cables next time. They are really POS's.

Re: More bad luck

i got the UPR cable the first time and I got it again(only because I know it will fit, not sure about the other cables in UPR firewall adjuster).....i figured it was better than the stock set up, maybe I was wrong :dunno:

Re: More bad luck

Is there any good firewall adjuster? Dont think my cable is gonna last much longer. My pedal feels more like **** every day. Just replaced the clutch, and flywheel so im pretty sure thats not the prob.

Re: More bad luck

I've had the UPR adjuster for about 3 or 4 years now. It's been perfectly fine for me. I've always been told to avoid the adjustable cables because they are garbage. Mikey had one on his car and it was on its way out for sure. It would take both legs to press the clutch in because of the way the cable was starting to unravel. Several shops have told me to avoid them as have many posts on forums. So, now I just replace with stock cables.
