made the bracket it all in place and all good now i got clutch slippage .... hit 3000 rpm then just slips and when pressing the clutch in the whole fire wall moves , so i gunna price up a standard clutch not a heavy duty one this might stop the fire wall from moving hopefully what u guys think......

may have something to do with the angle that the cable goes through the wall, yours appears to be at the wrong angle. If you look at the pic on page 1 you will see what I mean

you really need that angle in the tutorial..
your clutch will still work at a straight angle. but with alot of use the inner cable will cut through the alloy outer cable destroying the cable..
i did it straighter on my first attempt and it destroyed the cable within 6 months of everyday driving..

here is a crappy diagram i made to show you what i mean..
