clutch pedal is around 170mm!! its a long way out.



Just to make sure, that you are measuring pedal travel, not pedal distance from the floor depending how you measure it i guess.

If you measure from the back of the pedal where it meets the carpet and the distance to the floor is a good indication of travel.

Duh i know, but just making sure.....

ff: yeah, i measured the travel. it goes all the way to the floor, and i measured where it touches.

94: interesting. could you please tell me where "incorrectly" run is? and where properly run is. at the moment, i just played with ways to make it not touch the headers or anything moving.

My cable runs forward and down from the firewall to about where the pwr steer rack pipes are and then I've got it cable-tied to the rack across to the other side where it curves back and up to the bellhousing clamp.

Interesting to hear the EF/EL cable is shorter, because the length of mine has always been a drama - ie. the bend radiuses where it goes onto and comes away from the rack are of necessity quite tight to take up the length - shorter would be perfect!
