This is a bad pic, but it wasnt even to show the cable, but you can see a general idea. It should mount on a hole near the fender well, and go in front of the K-member and back to the trans.

I figured out the bottom part on this but where does it go through the firewall on an 86 with a speedometer cable. The picture looks like clutch cable goes into the speedo hole.

Was your car an auto to T5 swap??? If so, you have to take out the speedo cable, and re-route is thru the blank gromet about 5 inches to the left on the firewall, and the clutch cable goes in where the speedo cable went.
