Ok so i'm doing a manual conversion in my ef falcon and was wondering witch way the clutch cable runs (over the top of the engine or underneath?) if someone has some photos of the way it goes would be great.
Cheers Guys

Under. It runs out of the firewall, follows the steering intermediate shaft, along above the steering rack (below the sump/bellhousing), then bends straight into the clutch fork.

OP youre probably wondering exactly where it goes because it looks too long to comfortably fit across the rack? - unfortunately that is indeed where the f&^%er goes...

I reckon the rotten things need to be either a few inches shorter (and BTW I think EF / EL ones are shorter than earlier models ones - but still that's not quite enough IMO) - or about 3 feet longer - ie. so that they either sit happier across the rack without too tight bends on either side - or you have the length to make them comfortably run in a gentle arc further forward and under the engine.
