Clutch cable tube broken off mounts

I pulled the tube out of the tunnel, it was completely loose. Which hole in the bulkhead did it originally come out? There's the big hole with the sleave for the wiring harness and two more under it which are the right size. Passenger or driver's side hole?

My clutch cable runs through the smaller tube on the drivers side. The Speedo cable runs through the larger one on passenger side.

Of course lots of things on my car are, uh - slightly modified. Use the Terry cable - much smother than stock. Also check to make sure your pulley at the rear of the car is turning - mine was full of crud and jammed.

I will check tomorow to see where the accelerator cable passes through. I think it is to the drivers side and slightly higher than the clutch. The clutch cable comes off of the pedal cluster to the passenger side of the accel cable. When you run them don't twist them up - it is easy to do in the tunnel.

Thanks Jay. I might be confusing the speedo cable tube with the clutch. Tell me more when you can. I'll look at Haynes in the meantime.

Try a search for "tunnel" or something like that as Dave D did some picts of one cut open and cut up from a car that was chopped. Good luck.

Jay is right. Don't let the clutch and acccelerator cables get crossed when installing them. Its a wierd feeling when the engine speed races everytime you put in the clutch! Yes it can happen.

I used metal cable clamps to secure mine. Was able to use the normal openings. Easier than welding.

Milt see the U-Joint post.

Ken H,
You said you used metal cable clamps? My clutch tube broke through the other day and I need a fix that doesn't involve welding. Got the welder, but if there is another way please explain. Thanks

Non weld repair clutch tube

Hi
Check this out. This is a clutch tube repair appliance.
Apparantly bolts right on. It is available somewhere
but I lost the link. The pic should give some ideas, and someone will find the link for us.

best Mark

Last summer I used two cable clamps to fix a friends completly broken clutch tube. It worked great. One was installed in the access area below the shifter and the other was installed in the access opening closest to the firewall.

The "U" bolt piece of the cable clamp bolts through the center tunnel floor. Some washers and nuts from the underside of the car and your done.

It's not to PC but it works. If you can weld the tube up that would be the best way, but the location fuel lines scared me off from welding.

I installed a clamp on my car just to reduce the stress and movement of my clutch tube.

I can snap a few photos if you like.

Yeah if you could take a few pictures that would be great. I went down to Home Depot yesterday and bought some clamps, just haven't had the time to install them yet.
I like the angle iron with the tube idea. Anyone know the link?

Not only can it happen, it also scares the crap out of you the first time it does it when you're not expecting it.
