Need help with clutch cable routing

So I replaced the clutch cable and the helper spring on my 88 930 and like an idiot, I didn't take pictures of the cable location before I ripped the old one out. I have it properly on the fitting into the body, through the loop that holds it in place right behind the throttle linkage and properly connected at the clutch, but I cant figure out if it goes over or under the throttle linkage shaft, and either way, it rubs. I can't imagine it is proper for it to rub a moving part of the throttle assy.

So what did I screw up? Any ideas? I looked for threads and pics, but found nothing that helps me.

Hello Jeff - the way you have it in the above pictures is "mostly" correct (above the throttle bell crank), but you need to turn/rotate the cable housing a bit to the left so that it arcs over the rod and just to the left of the downward facing ear (I'm referring to your first pic). And believe it or not, it does lightly touch there, but when the arch is right, the contact is so slight that it is of no consequence to the cable housing or crank.


Here is a picture taken from the Pelican Tech article on clutch cable replacement - not a 930 transmission and the pic is sideways, but I think it will help you visualize what I'm talking about -

Thanks for posting.

Can you describe more details about how you fed the cable thru the firewall to the clutch pedal.....this would be good info.

By the way you could zip tie the clutch cable to the hose that runs alongside it clamped to the chassis to get it to stop rubbing on the throttle linkage, I did this without any problems so far. It lifts it enuff away to get a slight clearance.
