The flange on the cable is round, just make it a D shape towards the valve cover
Special thanks to go out to Large.....I completed the MM pedal height install today. I have to say muuuuuuch better. You definately need Steed's quick release vs. Fiore's component. I tried both and adjusted both, Fiore's did not allow the trans to get into reverse as easy, no matter the adjustment. It also engaged and release immediately off the floor without smooth shifting.
Instead of installing a new cable (only to save time), mine was just fine. I bought a new on from Steve for $40. Die grinded the end off, removed the black piece with the tabs. Cut the tabs off and filed it smooth. I then took a side cutting bit on a Dremel and increased the ID of the plastic piece to barely accept the clutch cable already installed on the car.
I got creative with cutting the side of the round portion if the clutch cable to clear the valve cover (it really did not need it even considering engine movement). I outlined the side of the PVC and valve cover, and cut it to shape to make it look like a fit piece.
I recommend this mod to anyone who does a FWA and quad.
I have the freeplay mod, Fiore Micro Click adjuster and UPR quandrant and just installed the MM pedal height adjustor. We had really bad problems getting it into reverse and had to do many, many clicks to get it to work and at that point it felt like I have to ride the clutch forever to get it to go. Help me please before I drive it thru a wall on purpose. Secondly, at wot I have trouble getting it into third...it goes, but nowhere near as easily as it did prior to my pedal height mod install.
BTW...I want to keep the pedal height mod as my left knee has tendonitis and this mod made it basicly unnoticeable when shifting.
It sounds like you need a Steeda quick release and a proper adjustment of the clutch.
Difficulty getting into gear (if your clutch is still good) sounds like the clutch is not fully disengaging. I do not know the ramp slope on the UPR, the MM pedal height adjustor works much better with the Steeda quad. Do what this thread says, it will work.
I have a new clutch..the whole nine yards. Can someone summarize exactly what I need to do??
You need to buy the steeda QR quadrant before you go any farther. You can't get into 3rd or reverse because you aren't getting enough clutch fork travel with the lowered pedal. To put it another way, the clutch is not releasing enough. The QR quadrant will give more clutch fork travel with the same amount of pedal travel and solve your problem.
Thanks I will order one now. Do I still need to perform the other mods in regards to the washers etc. once I get the steeda?
I would do that with any quadrant.
Alrighty, thanks! I'll have to print the entire thread lol!!:idea:
One last thing....can I still use my stock cable?? I saw in here where I might need a new one....
would not recomend getting new (aftermarket) cable, they are junk, use stock cable,
You can use your stock cable, but you might have to make a spacer for it. Otherwise you will have the firewall adjuster screwed out alot.
No offense, but I don't know what the heck you said after the word..."cable,"
I edited the original post.
Look at the pictures of the firewall adjusters on the first page. Specifically the wrong way versus the right way and you will see the spacer I am refering to. I used the OEM parts as the spacer. Alternatively, you can easily make a spacer of your own.
Great wright up!!
Installed everything and now awaiting tranny install.
based on the pictures, the fiore quad, looks like the same ramping as the steeda. I may purchase the steeda, and if its a steeper ramp ill keep it, otherwise i guess ill send it back
I still think my tranny is just built on a friday
they're different profiles
I'm not sure what the work week is like in Mexico, although I believe mine may have been done by a night shift.........it has NOCHE hand-painted on the top of the case
reading this thread, I just bought the MM clutch height adjuster to go with the stack of parts for my T56 swap. I already purchased the Steeda Firewall Adjuster and the Steeda Double Hook Quadrant. Should I ditch the double hook for the Quick Release?
