I found the clutch cable good and the problem is the plastic adjuster under the dash has stripped the teeth off. It looks like i will have to remove the mounting to replace it any information on this would be very helpful.

$30 and it works great. To get the stock plasic crap off its just easier to finish breaking it. Installing the aftermarket one is simple but its a tight fit.
