thanks for the suggestions... the clutch is not slipping and the fire wall is tip top... i will be instigating the stretched clutch cable and the f**k bearing as possible culprits...

it appears the nuts that adjust the clutch cable are working their way loose after a weeks time and damn near on impossible to drive after that... so atleast its not a huge problem.. just an annoying one...

Do you know for sure the adjuster nut is coming loose ??

Creep marking it is the best way to tell.

Joe from CMS had a look n test of the box thismorning and has diagnosed that it feels to him that the clutch fork is not right... so looks like it will be a "box out" job coming up soon...

Have a look at the clutch fork bush/insulator, they are known to pull through to the stop pin.

this exact same thing is happening to my ef. A mecanic told me the arm on my clutch pedal is cracked and bent. when i get my head under neath the console i can just see a crack.

also when i stand outside my car i can see the clutch isn't straight. He said it would be like a $2000 job because i'll need some ford parts and a new clutch kit because i would have ruined mine from driving it with the bent clutch.

And labour because he has to take the dash out and stuff. Do u think this is an acurate quote.

WOW! $2000? you could buty a whole kit for that inc installation and should come to no more than $2000 then sell off the un-needed parts...

Turns out it was a worn 'nose cone" making it difficult to change gears...

I can only assume the re builder was snorting a bong?

I'll take a punt, worn input shaft retainer? even so, this'll cause more grief with 4th and other gears.
