Clutch cable came off. (pics)

Alright, I did a search and i couldnt find anything on this issue.
I lost my clutch, and after inspecting i found this.
the cable came out of the retaining tab completly, im trying to get it it between the nuta again, but i just cant muscle the cable back that far. is there a way to get the tention off the cable so i can move it back?

Man, what a grease pit.
Yes, there is a procedure for adjusting the clutch (Including the cable)
The C-spring tension needs to be released before you can move the cable-ends and the cable needs to sit in the tube inside the tunnel.
I suggest that you first have a serious clean-up with steam perhaps?
Get a Bentley Repair Manual for your 911.
There is a Tech article on PP.
You can do a search here but you'll love the Bentley.

ok heres how things look now.

figure 1 shows the housing in its proper placement and the adjusting nuts with the retaining tab between them.

figure two shows the cable itsself. i need to obtain about a inch more slack in the cable so i can get the knarp behind the flange on the trasmission.

can anyone tell me how i can get more slack? the nuts are backed out all the way on the ajustment.

i noticed that made it easier to pull the cable. Its wedged all the way up now. there must be a way to get more slack in the cable i dont need much more then a inch or maybe two at the most.

Your Figure # 1 shows the cable coming down at what appears to be a rather sharp angle from the left. Are you sure you have the housing and cable routed properly?
good luck -

Something looks weird. What year is this 911?

Post a clear pix of the levers etc. so I can see the rest of the clutch adjustment.

Like this:

Did you resolve the original problem which made the cable come apart?

The clutch you have is only found on a 70 or 71. You should have no problem putting on the cable end if

1: You disengage the plastic guide ( I don't know what the correct name is) from the release fork.
2: The stopnuts are positioned full loose, as you have shown.
3: The clutch pedal is wedged up.
4: You put the cable end into the attachment hole and slip on the retainer.
5: Last is push the plastic guide as far as possible onto the threaded cable sheath/stop nuts. Then engage the plastic guide onto the clutch release fork.

PS I would consider upgrading this plastic guide to the metal one as the plastic will eventually break off the 2 tabs and strand you.
Good luck
Ed

fierochris:
It would have been a lot easier if you would have stated the year/type from the beginning.
Your signature doesn't help either:
86.5 928s *new baby*
71 911 Targa w/ gas burners, PMO's, *sold*

I repeat, take a picture of your clutch levers (like my example) so we can see more.
The cable is first attached to the front, then the rear in a certain fashion.
The cable you have in the picture is missing the boot and looks kinked.
If the cable is old, get a new one.
If you want us to help, how us pictures as requested.
