Guys,

I'm here at Uni waiting till 3pm to get a new clutch cable fitted, in hoping the clutch pickup and release will feel like a new falcon. I haven't changed the cable since the car was new.

Oh yeah the clutch cable costed me $55.00 friggin ripped off to the max, "NOT HAPPY JAN".:( :(

I'll let you guys know how it goes, i've delayed my cat till later still trying to findout the best exhaUst setup if any.

Get them to check the pedal box while they are at it... the bit the clutch pedal sits on has a habbit of bending!

Well kelli ... It soundz like youve had that problem also.
And what a pain in the a** it is to remove, I took 1/2 the bloody dash & steering column apart to find that the subframe is spotwelded to the chassis.
So off to a Mig welder i go to get the shaft straightened & migwelded inplace with a 3mm plate as support. Just as he finished i chucked my head under the steering wheel to ave a look when i noticed the bloody sound insulation stuff way uptop of the dash had caught fire FUDGE so i grabbed my fire extinguisher (WHICH EVERYCAR SHOULD HAVE!!!!!) thinking it would be a gas/foam aimed & let it rip ........ OHHHHH just great not only did the fire go out but i copped eye/nose & throatfull of DRY POWDER!!! And for you sportsfans that dont know this... A lungfull of this stuff gives you the shi** as i spent the good part of the day on the loo not going anywhere TRUE STORY:cussing: :cussing: :cussing:

Kelli, i know exactly what you mean, i was drivng one time and stap teh pedal went to the floor, the cable anchor effed up, it bent it self str8 from fatique, my baby was broken on the side of the road , had to get it towed to the repairer, this was not so long ago. Abit sad that ford can't designed it abit better IMO:eek: :eek:

Well guys, i really really happy with the new clutch cable, the clutch feels like a new falcon outta the showroom, no more kinks and squeeks and chatters outta the clutch release. :D :D :D :D

What the problem with my old cable was, is the plastic sheilding around the metal cable had frayed about 10cm, so hence the clutch operation was rough.

Oh yeah btw, i got the cable done at Jims Auto Service "the guy with the Blue TE-50 in our tickford club. The place is where we meet in Penrith to cruise to bathurst.
