Re: Clutch Cable Question

pa ya , I remember that ^

the same discussion has been had here on site about the L body ones too - same deal applies to them too although the parts are still L body specific

knowing this , I sold a clutch cable to a guy in Quebec - I also sent along the bracket - he pm'ed me back , so happy I'd sent the bracket too 'cause he wouldn't have got the cable to fit his car without it

if buying a used cable always always get the bracket (and the spare clip) too 'cause there's gonna be a 50-50 chance you'll wish ya did

Re: Clutch Cable Question

Thought i'd update. Got the part in today, box marked made in Italy. I quickly ripped out the old one, and guess what..........It's a exact match!!

Re: Clutch Cable Question

What was the brand and part number. Were the mounting points an exact match also, or just the cable length?

When you get it installed, post a picture of the cable bracket so at least we will know which bracket works with that cable.

Re: Clutch Cable Question

As promised, here is a picture of the box end and bracket.

ATP Y-738 was the cable used. Took twice as long to install as it did to remove. Took about 10 min to install. (had to find the grommet)

Re: Clutch Cable Question

A few strands of my clutch cable just snapped. Thank God it did it in the drive way, I hate getting towed or a possible accident.
Thanks for the info. Here is a photo of my red 87 Daytona strut tower mounted clutch cable bracket. The difference is noticeable comparing the distance from grommet to the mounting nut between the 87 & 89.
Apparently my cable is the:
Rockauto Y362
Pioneer CA-202 $22.99
NAPA PN: BK 6151251 Product Line: Balkamp
Mopars online site doesn't list a part #, only the year.

Big price differences, Mopar $41.59 to Rockauto $20.98. NAPAs $29.14 but has a full 1 year 12,000 mile warranty so I'll try them.

Re: Clutch Cable Question

I eventually fixed this issue, and after i replaced the clutch, had to shim it with washers at the transmission, above the retainer clip. Works perfectly now.

Re: Clutch Cable Question

Had to order the cable for my 87 Daytona Z from NAPA, should be here tomorrow. Although listed as the proper one from other dealers obvious mistakes I fear it’s not and this could drag out a while.
But then looking at the photos it occurred to me I missed the obvious, a later model (88 up) cable could work on my 87. As the cables are the same length all I should have to do is drill 2 new holes in the tower mount the increased distance between a newer cable and my older one. Problem solved, I hope.

Re: Clutch Cable Question

Well somehow NAPA, even after I gave them all the right part numbers, really screwed up. Delivered a ATP Y137 (Italy), they got one letter and one number right. It's for the 83's like a Rampage, Horizon, etc. A full 1 1/2 inches shorter no way I could make it fit. Now I have to wait until they can ship next week.

Re: Clutch Cable Question

I had a heck of a time with my GTS during the 5 speed swap. I ended up with every available bracket till I got one to work.

Re: Clutch Cable Question

Totally wasted a good Saturday.
Iíve been broke down in the middle of nowhere so every time I repair or replace something Iím always thinking, is there a better way, can it be made stronger or more versatile. In this case I drilled 3 more sets of holes in the mounting bracket. It can be moved forward, backward or flipped to move way forward. If I get caught in nowhere in need of a cable about anything will do temporally. I just added two big washers under the nuts to make sure the mount canít bend. Good thing I made this mod.

NAPA got me the correct ATP Y362 cable. Problem (1) itís 1 Ĺ inches shorter, stock was 43 Ĺ & ATP 42, even accounting for cable stretch thatís way too much, (2) the mounting point on the sheath that goes through the bracket hole is a half inch difference. These 2 differences greatly reduced the clutch play. By moving the bracket forward moved the play to the middle of the peddle arch. This greatly improved things. However, this sucks, 3 days messing around and it still isnít as good as it was. Monday Iím hitting the Dodge dealership and hopefully theyíll have the right cable.

Anybody had this problem?

Re: Clutch Cable Question

maybe your tensioner in the pedal is bad, when you pull the pedal up does it take up the slack like it should ? the tensioner should take care of about 1.5" cable slack

Re: Clutch Cable Question

Sorry I wasn't clear, I'm tired now. The ATP cable is 1 1/2 inches shorter. When I moved the bracket forward the auto adjuster moved a bit as well so it is working. Prior to moving the bracket I had to let the peddle up almost all the way before the transmission engaged. Now it's about mid stroke. Stock cable would start to engage a few inches off the floor and have a much longer range of motion.
