    i looked at the pedal and the cable is still attatched to the adjuster. should i look under the shield on the tranny.

    yeah i would see how much slack is down on the tranny itself

    u can also have someone press the clutch while u crawl under the car and look

    Check the tranny end. If that is still atached to the trans, diconect it and try to pull the cable out of the casing. If it is broken it should pull out. If it is in one piece you broke the clutch or fork. But that is doubtful.
