Unhappy broken clutch cable mounting point

the ear on the tranny that holds the clutch cable broke. found a bracket from wevo but it's for a 915 gear box and won't work on my 1983 930 4 speed gear box. does anyone have a fix for this? any pics or ideas would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance, mick

You mean this? This picture doesn't show the turbo version, but the part description says it is.

in the pic chris posted you can see where the clutch cable is captured by an ear off the bottom of the tranny. the outer part of thatear broke. they make a bracket for the 915 tranny but i haven't found one for the 930 4 speed. talked to wevo and rothsport but still don't have fix. any suggestions?

I would think you could have some material welded on to the case to replace the broken "ear" bit

Remove engine and gearbox.
Separate gearbox, drain, clean. Photograph serial numbers.
Heat housing, weld up, grind to shape, drill hole to size.
Take this opportunity to wipe down the engine, address anything that's a PITA to fix with the engine in.
Fill, reassemble, install.

Or you could fabricate some bolt-on doodad in the meantime.

Or convert it to hydraulic.

Chris, how involved is it to convert to a hydraulic clutch? it's gotta be easier then pulling engine and trans.

It would be ALOT more work and expense. You'd have to change the pedal cluster to one that uses a clutch slave cylinder and run hydraulic lines too.

I've had BMW's with hydraulic clutches that use expensive ATE or FAG master and slave cylinders that are poorly made these days in who knows what country by the lowest bidder and don't last. They are complicated and high maintenance and will probably leave a nice big carpet soaking puddle of brake fluid on the driver side floor when the slave cylinder seals takes a dump after a little while.

I so much prefer the simplicity and low cost of an old school... mechanical clutch cable. They just work, the clutch pedal feel is great, and they last a long time.

It happened to a 930 race car I had. The shop welded it. Still OK.

thanks for the info guys. I think i'll try to make some sort of bracket. welding seems like a lot of work having to remove engine and tranny.

I saw a repair on a 930 trans which was a simple block of aluminum with two bolts holding it to the part number lug and a hole for the cable to go through.

Of course it won't fit on a 930, but you can make one easily which does. Posted to show how it can be solved...

Good luck
Roland
