Is there a way to use an oem clutch cable from a ‘96-‘04 in a ‘94/‘95 with the stock quadrant? The ‘94/‘95 cable is 62.5” and the ‘96 is 70’.5” I do believe.
Yeah, I was looking at their cable and quadrant kit. I need a new cable their isn’t a “good” oem style cable made for a ‘94/‘95. Allegedly the part store cables are terrible, as in they break. But part store cable or adjustable kit type stuff are the only options.You might be able to with a firewall adjuster.
Maximum Motorsports sells an OEM cable kit for 82-04, and its 69” long.
No it didn’t break yet. The other day it was stuck in neutral idling. When I turned the motor off it shifted freely. I can also hear a rattling under the car. The clutch & throw out bearing are new. It’s shifter again but I don’t know for how long. I think the cable has stretched.Did your OEM cable break?
I have an adjustable on my car at the moment, but it’s been crap from day 1. i let my car sit for a bit while I did heads & cam, and the cable became unbearable. Took it off and lubed it and it’s acceptable now, better than when it was brand new.
If your cable is binding, and not broken, try lube.
I have one of the longer OEM cables, but it wouldn’t fit directly without taking up some of the slack at the firewall. I didn’t have a firewall adjuster though. I may have needed a different quadrant to make it work as well, I don’t know.

My new aftermarket centeforce clutch? Why do you suspect that? When I say “new” it’s probably a year old but it hasn’t been acting up until a few weeks ago. It hasn’t been slipping, no burning smell.the new clutch is your problem, not the cable
its aftermarket right?
I did that as well. I lifted it and ratcheted it back (so the line was tighter) I didn’t hear any clicks though and it felt the same. Bad quadrant maybe?lifting up on the pedal ADDS MORE SLACK
that is how it works, as the clutch wears, you NEED MORE slack
your issue is the complete OPPOSITE. you have too much slack
look at how works, lift the clutch pedal to disengage the arm, at the same time, pull the quad to take up the slack as much as possible, then release clutch pedal
step on the pedal, do you hear the teeth jump, is the pedal tight?

If it’s just a bad quadrant is worth the money and hassle to go with MM’s $180 universal kit? The cable is longer so the routing will be different.
I’m pretty certain it’s the cable. But at this point I guess I’ll replace the quadrant too since I think that’s the only way to run a non parts store cable. No oem cables made anymore for a ‘94/‘95.you should be able to get enough tension to disengage
if it stripped it will not hold, is it stripped?
I know it, that’s where the rock and a hard place comes in. There’s no “good” oem replacement cable made for a ‘94/‘95 but there’s tons of adjustable ones and quadrant kits. I wish there was, so I didn’t have to go “custom.” The maximum motor sports “kit” is a good $80 or so more than the rest. But it comes with an “oem” cable for a ‘96-‘04 which is supposed to be the way to go. It’s longer than a stock ‘95 cable by about 6-7 inches I think.THEN its rubbing something most likely
if that is the case, then cable needs replacing, however now you enter cable quality land, better chose the well, not all cables are equal.
