What is the best material to use for a heat shield to cover the extractors?
The trouble I have is the extrac heat is melting the inner cable (neoprene>?) and making my clutch sticky (new clutch, new cable, new pedal box, firewall welded) this is the only solution I can come up with, as the cable is very,very hot after running the car for 15 mins....motor still cool though(near blue on temp) Any help guys, would be greatly appreciated. This is giving me the absolute s**t!!! :evil:

You could thermal wrap the extractors.
Could have them HPC/ceramic coated.

Just a quick one did you have problems with your clutch feeling sticky from hot gummy inner cables that got hot from extracs? Mine is with accel and clutch, probably even my cruise cable, I havn't checked yet!!

just athought .instead of wrapping the extractors which would be a bummer to do why not just wrap the clutch cable.if you can get hold of some of that heavy thermal silver paper stuff you could cut it into strips easy peasy.

sand a lil bit off the outer of the cable, just to let heat proof paint stick, and give it a spray? i dunno ive never tried it or never had your problem.

Thanks guys, that stuff seems the way to go- I'm not sure where to get it though? Repco maybe?
I hope it does the job, and hope it repels the heat enough

Thermo Sleeve

The new seamless lamination of a high-temperature fabric to a highly-reflective foil is the makeup of Thermo-Sleeve, which provides protection from radiant heat for hoses and wires.

Thermo-Sleeve's ultra light-weight construction provides more insulating than traditional bulky rubber-coated fiberglass. The aluminized sleeving reflects over 90% of radiant heat, and is fireproof and oil resistant.

Thermo-Sleeve is packaged in 3 or 12-foot lengths, and is sold in five different inside diameter sizes. Thermo-Sleeve is available in custom lengths for special applications.
