    Cable Clutch routing

    Just to be safe I want to confirm something, Im replacing the clutch on my old 94 max for the new owner, the cable has a lot of play on it, I need a pic of the way it sites from the firewall down to the transmition. I would appreciate it a lot. It is adjustable, and I have done that as well, just want to make sure its not something simple. thanks. Its a 1994 mighty max with a 2.4L and annual trans.

    It's pretty straightforward, the cable goes thru the firewall and arc's back to the transmission, no holes or brackets save for the anchor to the clutch arm.

    See Chapter 8 of the Haynes manual here http://www.mightyram50.net/vbulletin...er-216-Manuals

    Thanks, thats what I was thinking it was. There is no resistance at all on the cable or the pedal after I installed the new clutch. Just trying to basic troubleshoot before I remove everything and look at the tranny and clutch again.

    here's a pix of what it should be doing without the motor installed (rare pix).

    unless you missed something really big with the clutch, it shouldn't do that. The cable should go thru the bracket at the bottom drivers side of the tranny, and the adjuster nut should be tight to the rubber grommet at the firewall.

    Other than the flywheel being attached to the transmition?

    Sleeps gets it... Flywheel still on the Transmission. This Pix is from when I broke the Flywheel bolts off at 8100 RPM.

    found the weak spot.

    I figured you were just checking some clearance thing. So the correct answer would have been the broken bolts in the flywheel.

    Yeah it threw me off at first, cause it almost looks normal. Lol. Yikes I say.

    On topic I did not find anything abnormal with the clutch or anything else when I took it back off. So last night I re-installed it and adjusted the cable alot, and I now have pressure on the entire pedal. I have not drive it yet, got a couple more bolts to finish tightening, but I think it was the problem. Ill know for sure when I drive it tonight or tomarrow.

    One last question, the trans gear oil, 85-90w, the approx amount I need? I cant DL that file from the link LSR mike posted.

    Thanks, and its all better. Works like a champ. Just needed a good adjustment. Maybe if I ever redo it I may go with a better clutch and a hydrolic set up.
