clutch cable replacement

Which clutch cable would you guys recommend as a replacement for a '75 1.8L car, Terry cable or any other? I heard that a 6er cable is a little closer fit, but I don't know for sure.
Thanks.

Terry all the way.

We run nothing else in our cars (except hydraulic clutches)

woodman,

I second Brad on the Terry cable. I've used these on the two running 914's I've owned, and never had a problem except the one cable I got with the rubber boot (for the fire-wall) on backwards. No sweat!

Enjoy,

Go with the Terry. If you don't want to do that, get a factory OE cable (if you can find one). The cheap aftermarket ones are crap.

Thanks guys. I'm doing the throttle cable (Terry cable again??) and fuel lines to in a couple of weeks. I'm just trying to gather all the correct materials first. It's going to be a full on attack on that center tunnel. Oh yeah, shift linkage too, and while everything is out, I'll swab the inside of the tunnel with some rust preventative paint.
