Double Hook Quadrant & Firewall Adjuster
The SVE double hook quadrant is CNC machined from billet aluminum for good looks & lasting durability. The double hook design allows for additional adjustment. Once you have your quadrant set, adjust the cable without crawling underneath your Mustang! The firewall adjuster features the popular quick-click design that allows quarter turn adjustments & doesn't require an annoying jam nut.
The firewall adjuster eliminates the rubber bushing on your Mustang that comes from the factory and offers a wide range of adjustment that the factory piece does not offer. You will need to apply a small amount of grease or anti-seize to the threads for optimum performance.
I bought this clutch cable kit from LMR a few days ago to install on my 89 2.3 Mustang. My stock clutch cable was no good and needed replaced and I figured what better time to upgrade it to an adjustable cable than now. The kit included everything that was needed and all the pieces seem to be high quality. It does not come with instructions so I recommend watching the LMR how to video for the 5.0 cable as a guideline. I would have given this kit 5 stars overall, but the cable itself needs modified. The ball on the end of the cable is too large to fit into the U shaped clip that hooks the cable onto the clutch fork (see included photo). I had to take a grinder to the ball and grind it down until it was small enough to fit.The ball on the cable also has excessively long extra material on the end that is unneeded and is too long to slide the pin through the U shaped clip that connects the cable to the clutch fork. After spending lots of time grinding when it should have been a simple swap I finally got the cable on and after adjusting the firewall adjuster to the correct spot took it for a test drive and it worked good. It takes some time to make the adjustments to find just the right spot to have the right amount of tension on the cable but when you find it, it makes a big difference. This is a great kit of everything you need to upgrade your stock 2.3 clutch cable, just be warned it will require modification. This is something LMR should really look into, especially for the price, it should include the correct size cable that doesn't need modification.
