eek ea cable clutch drama

hey guys sorry i havent been on for a bit but ive been tinkering a little lowering my falcon but my girl has been takin most of my time anyway ive had a small problem my clutch cable tore a nice hole in my freakin firewall i only found out it was a common problem about a week before i noticed i couldnt change gears almost at all i dodgyed it up with part of a jack acting as the new sleeve for now but what i want to know is did any e-series come with a hydraulic clutch or was it all cable? im thinking if they didnt ill probably use a hilux system instead well anyway any help would be great

Re: ea cable clutch drama

same happened to me last week......firewall on both sides has a crack and gears are getting harder to change by the day.
I havent been bothered doing anything at the moment as i have no $$$ but i believe ford make a plate that you weld on and this fixes the engine side but not the cabin side...

Re: ea cable clutch drama

if you can get this plate please let me know where you got it from and what is cost you or if any one has one of them a picture or drawing would be great as mine has broken the mount all the way through and is now sitting on the cable and i have a hole in the firewall

Re: ea cable clutch drama

i fixed mine by taking the piece out and wielding it to a 6m plate and screwing it back on the wall works really well andthe only thing you have to disconnect is the clutch cable
i will post a picture of it if anyone wants it
