    it was me. best one hands down. You dont need anything but i would suggest getting a stock (non adjustable) cable if you think yours is stretched or seen its better days.

    I heard they werent making them anymore so you better get one while you can. I dunno where you can get it but a quick :google2: will come up with some info. Just goto fiore's site i believe they have a list

    i bought one from lethal performance. i have yet to install it and have also heard its one of the best out there.

    if u need a new cable, get a stock replacement like somone else said.

    I got mine from lethal also, best investment I could have done. I couldnt get the proper adjustment with stock quadrant...this one is perfect. I have had one in the 97 and the 99

    well im just waiting for it to come in now.. i ordered it 2 days ago or whenever i made this topic..

    now i just need the stock non adjustable cable it looks like..

    also, i remember matt (uncltrvlnmatt) said that my motor mounts may be worn out.. he said check to see if i can lift the motor.. well at idle, i can see my motor moving, something that i dont recall being an issue.. matt, if you see this, give me some info!

    just to make sure i got this right, i need a STOCK NON ADJUSTABLE CLUTCH CABLE correct? i will be going to autozone/ford dealership tomorrow hopefully to get one.. please let me know guys! thanks

    ya just get a stock cable from ford. The stock cables are non adjustable. A lot of the aftermarket cables are adjustable and lots of people have had problems with them streching and breaking.

    oh ok.. my dad called ford today and asked for the non adjustable and they said that its the ADJUSTABLE clutch cable.. but i imagine that they said its to be used with the adjustable clutch setup since my car is a 98.. so when i buy from ford, it will just be a regular cable?

    ill get on that tomorrow hopefully because i have to work today, and tomorrow but ill go to ford first thing after school.. thanks meangrn!

    the ford cable is adjustable, but it is the one you need.

    it should be right. its just a stock cable. The stock set up is adjustable but the adjustment comes from the plastic quadrant or w/e the hell its called down by the pedal. with aftermarket adjustable cables you can adjust the slack in the cable instelf. Some of the companies say that with an adjustable cable and firewall adjuster you are able to fine tune it better but i dont see how that is possible. Plus the cables are shit. To make the install easier definately take out your front seat trey. Makes it much easier to get to and your not standing on your head during the install. I just looked under there before i started and said fuck this im taking the seat out haha.

    you can adjust the stock cable down at the tranny at the end of the cable also.
    see the threads at the end of the cable?

    Trey, I was just thinking about this, did you only get the quadrant, or did you buy a firewall adjuster as well? you will need the firewall adjuster also...

    Something to think about, after you put these parts in there will be alot of free play in your clutch pedal until it engages.

    This is the fix for that....

    there shouldnt be a lot of freeplay in the pedal. You adjust the firewall adjuster to take out more slack or put more in it

    if you set your clutch to engage right around the brake pedal, there will be free play. you are adjusting your clutch, not the slack in you pedal hight. By adjusting the firewall adjuster you are changing the position of the clutch fork, essentially changing the distance of the TOB from the PP fingers. To get the correct adjustment and distance is not to have your pedal right at the top. Even 1/2 of an inch of slack in the pedal WILL be noticed, the wont be any resistance until the clutch starts to engage.

    I logged into my account at Lethal Performance wondering if my order had been shipped out or processed or what and saw a message from LP... I have bad news and good news.

    Bad News - Lethal Performance is out of stock of Fiore's Clutch adjusting kit..

    Good News - Message from LP saying
    - "We're still about 2 weeks out on these units, Fiore has agreed to make us a special run. We'll ship it the same day we get it."
    - so im not screwed out of getting a Fiore clutch adjuster! :) glad they are making another run for Lethal Performance!
