Clutch Cable Question

Car is a 1989 Daytona T2 Shelby. Looking for a clutch cable. My outer casing is starting to fray. Who has the best one? Mopar or someone else?

Re: Clutch Cable Question

you should know there are 2 diff clutch cables for our cars as well as 2 diff brackets on the strut tower

I don't know when the change occured but one will be an earlier version

the brackets change in that one is rectangular shaped the other is more square
this changes the point where the retaining clip goes relitave to the distance from the tab on the trans the other end of the cable sheathing sits in / on

so , the 2 cables have a different measurement from the mount points on the sheathing
one will be longer than the other although the actual cable inside will be the same length

ordering for the correct model year is important here

to illistrate , points are the cable , sticks are the mounting locations on the sheathing

...i...........i........
...i..............i.....

only 1 cable will work with it's own correct bracket - you can't mix & match here

if the cable you get won't fit and is off by a couple of inches you need to either exchange the cable for the correct one , or if no other cable is avaliable you will need to get the other bracket

this applies to both the g bodys and the l bodys - though they don't interchange between body type - just to be clear

Re: Clutch Cable Question

Trust the doctor, he's right on this one.











I never did find the correct aftermarket cable.

Re: Clutch Cable Question

According to Rockauto, 85-87 uses Y362, 88-89 uses Y738. Y738 no longer shows stock as I ordered the last one. I guess all i can do is wait and see.

According to ATP's website, 86-87 is supposed to be 42" long, while 88-89 is 72.75". Typo?

Re: Clutch Cable Question

362 is what they used to show for the '89, maybe they finally figured out the mistake. I don't think I ever tried 738, let me know how it turns out.

Re: Clutch Cable Question

The pic looks like the outer case of cables are 2 inch or so different length .If the inner cable is the same length it will work,like the package says it fits both y363 and y738

all the G bodys will have the same length cable as the position of the clutch pedel and the fork arm on the trans never change but as I said before - if the mounting points on the sheathing are diff on the new cable from the old the bracket on the strut tower will need swaped for the other bracket

not really a big deal as the o-p's current cable still works and is just showing it's age

getting the other bracket from someone here on site shouldn't be hard if maybe we knew which one is on the car now (that doesn't work with the new cable)

Re: Clutch Cable Question

Actually it's fried know. I noticed it's frayed badly, and I tried to move the car yesterday, and its definitely shot. Not too worried about it as I spent 1/2 the day inside the dash fixing wring. It's a travesty what people do to these cars. I cut alot of wiring out of the car that someone added. Everything is nice and tight know.

No, it will not, not on an '89 at least, I've been down this road, that's why I have those pictures - because everybody kept telling me there was no difference and that it will work - so I took the pictures to prove my case.
