loosen the stock clutch cable to get it back on
I recently started my first clutch replacement, Centerforce dual friction clutch, F1 aluminum flywheel, new bearings, etc. Everything seemed to go pretty well until I went to hook the stock clutch cable back up. The cable is about 3/4" too short to get on the clutch fork. How do I get enough slack in the cable to reach? I've tried the old "pull the clutch pedal back" adjustment, but didn't hear a click or anything and didn't get any slack in the cable.
Do i need to compress the diaphragm spring / disengage the clutch at all to get the cable back in the clutch fork? BTW-The transmission is still off the car.
Sorry for the newbness. I've tried looking at the cable quadrant/adjuster to figure out the workings, but had no luck. Not much fun being upside down with your head under the steering column.
