Ok. I installed an aftermarket clutch in my Sprint. The clutch cable original adjustment wont work on this new clutch. Any tips on readjusting a new clutch? Thanks Mike.

Funny thing. I just installed a new clutch in my 87 sprint. Was a super pain in the butt in my drive way. Mostly just getting the transmission back in :furious:

Anyway. Had to re adjust the cable to get the peddle to actuate the lever. You should see the clutch lever on top of the transmission. Long metal bracket connecting the clutch cable to transmission. Look at the lever and make sure that the detents line up. One on the lever and one on the gear it slides onto. If you have these lined up and didn't remove the lever all together like I did. :oops:

You need to re adjust the cable tension. Make sure when doing so you keep the lever straight when tightening the adjustment nut (front of the cable. should be a 10mm and a 14mm) Adjust the 14mm to tighten the clutch cable then adjust the 10mm to keep it snug.

Hope this helps.
