Bout ready to tear my hair out, I've got an 87 fox with a clutch that won't completely disengage.
After market quadrent with three set points ( it's on the highest one) firewall adjuster (maxed out) and we shimmed the cable underneath the car. The wierd thing is when we put the shim on it worked great, untill I took it around town and it just got worse the longer I drove. Any ideas? I have the tranny ready to come out, but I'd rather avoid that if someone has any other sugestions. :shrug

A old cable can stretch-i would install a new before pulling the trans.

The maximum motorsports cable is the "factory cable". However, many have realized you can't beat the quality of factory cable on our cars.

Personally I went through 2 steeda cables before installing the maximum and so far so good.

Since I'm waiting for the cable to arrive I went ahead and measured the cable that I took out, it measured just shy of 60" which is the correct length? Me and my dad have been tryin to figure it out, is it possible for the quadrant to become loose and rotate out of position?
