OK, I have installed the clutch cable.

WOW, The clutch is so light now and leg friendly.

I was starting to get a bit lopsided as my left leg was bulking up from the heavy clutch pedal LOL.

Very happy with the transformation of the Wagon. Is much more enjoyable to drive now.

Thanks Fiend for setting up the group buy.

Cheers
BenJ

make sure you shield it from the exhaust as it wont take long to dry the grease inside the cable

BENJ's nice shiney exhaust could be a heat coating (but probably isn't? ... Benj?)

I'm buying some of that glass fibre heat wrap tape that is about 50mm wide. Unfortunately they only sell it in 25m lengths for $50... I only need about 5 metres to wrap the cables I want to wrap. Anyone got any better product?

Ahhh, Nope, it is just High Temp Paint. Just so it looks pretty. LOL

The new cable will go nice with the clutch too Benj, the slightly harder fingers will make a nice D-tent in the travel.

I am pretty sure they are set to flex on the pick up point.. did I get that right? of are they flexing just before?

Yes, it is pretty much spot on.

The clutch is easy to push in and springier on the release. Just have to get used to it now.
