Is there a benefit to "backdating" to a non-helper spring setup? Granted, it's alot easier to work with, but is there an advantage? I have a mag-case transmission without the helper spring and I'm just curious.

Okay, I just did a quick-fix using my four favorite "tools"... Baling wire, washers, zip ties, and JB Weld!

I road-tested after just two wraps of baling wire and washers and it was holding up fine. Two more wraps of baling wire, JB Weld, and a zip-tie for insurance, and I'm about as confident as I can be that it'll all be good. I've taken pics - will post them up when I get a chance.

But still a little confused on the Wevo part vs. the ~$15 Porsche part referenced above. If I'm reading correctly, I *think* what I need is the $15 Porsche part and the Wevo part is for the earlier (pre '77) 915's. Is that correct?

Here's what a quick&dirty (yet highly functional), fix looks like. Held up just fine over 800 miles of driving, though I must admit, I did clutch-less shift whenever possible. If anyone could confirm that what I need is the $15 part (for a proper fix), that would be appreciated.

I can see a real benifit w/ the Wevo. It looks much stronger than the factory part. The factory pary looks brittle.

the factory part will break just from sitting the trans on the ground.

But does the Wevo part work with both the early and late 915's? I was lead to believe it is designed to work only with the early 915.

Regardless, I still believe my solution (pictured above) is the most elegant and functional.




Yes, I'm kidding....

This part is $68, so you are not going to get far with materials and effort before this is a fair and easy deal.

Pelican can supply you, just tell them you want to buy a "WEVO XT-206 Clutch cable bracket" and they will be able to help you out.

Hayden,

Today, I had Kurt at Marque Motors (Portland) install your part in my car. He reported that the fit was great, went it with absolutely no problem and much faster to install than he anticipated. He purchased the kit with the longer studs.

Everybody's parts should fit so well .

My clutch operation feels 100% better and I wish I knew of this fix sooner.

Thanks for the suppport for our older cars.

Here are some after shots (my before ones are above):

Good to see this thread come back up, as I put my '86 away last Fall with my "red-neck JB Weld & bailing wire" fix, but now that Spring is here, I need to do a proper fix. Maybe I've just forgotten, but I'm not clear on whether the Wevo part is only for the earlier cars? Should I just buy the ~$15 factory fix part?

I think the Wevo part is for older cars without the omega spring.

Good God, was it really 8 years ago that I did this? I guess you don't want to know that my "temporary fix" is still holding up just fine. Damn you JB Weld!

Mine cracked on my 75, just enough so the hole on one side cracked almost all the way off. I drilled through the remainder of the mount and bolted a piece of steel to the broken side, I then back fill it with gator epoxy.

My 1974 911 coupe has a European 3.2 liter engine and transmission installed and I think my clutch cable may have a problem. Interesting thread.

Thanks for sharing.

Mine came broken but since I was taking the trans apart anyway I sent the case part to Ben/MB911. He welded in mag filler and built it up so it looked similar to original. I still have to drill a hole in the piece but it's good to go. I didn't know about the aftermarket brackets or I would have done one just because it's cheaper than shipping and welding but if you want it to look original, call Ben.
