We rebuilt the cluster with the bronze bushings and replaced the cable with results no better than before. It started after replacing the clutch and pressure plate. The first clutch replacement wouldn't even dis engage enough to get the car in gear so out comes the motor again and replaced with a new unit. Now I can drive the car but at the expense of tricky clutch action. It is a Kennedy light weight pressure plate and clutch, new throw out bearing with the extended sleeve .Since all the headache's when I finally break down and drop the motor again I will replace it with a Patrick motorsport's unit. I just try to stay out of the city with it now to keep from too many stop and start's. Kennedy PP works smooth as silk. Something somewhere binding up.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
