New Clutch Cable


I got an 85 Mustang GT and i am about to install a new clutch cable ( Kit ). I was just woundering if theres any advice anyone has to help this go smoother. Any brand you recommend, or if there is anything else you recommend that i buy, i heard someone tell me i should make a casing around it and then weld it, Is that all needed? Thanks for any help.

Just put it in? I haven't heard any tricks and I sure didn't use any when I changed mine.

you wont need to put a casing around it if you route it away from the headers by using the supplied bracket.

Use the FRPP cable with a fire wall adjustor, saves crawling under the car to make adjustments. I've heard the Steeda's etc. are weaker and can split.

I used header wrap around the cable where it contacted the long tubes, haven't had any problems in a year.

Check the Quadrant for cracks if it's the original, PITA if you replace the cable and it breaks on you.

Good Luck getting it done.
