Having some problems getting my clutch well adjusted on my Falcon after a conversion. The pedal sits annoyingly high, if I adjust the cable at the firewall to a sensible height the clutch wont disenguage.

I used some zipties to bring the cable out a bit further where it joints the pedal which has some marginal improvements, but to add to things, when I accelerate hard the pedal rises significantly more making it very hard to get yer foot on. Can the cable be adjusted at the box end as well?
