So we finally got my new JWT pressure plate and stock disk installed this afternoon, but when I went to adjust the clutch cable, I had to adjust it all the way down to the point where there was no more thread left on the end of the cable, and at this point it doesn't seem to engage correctly, or all the way.

Did anyone else here have this problem? I was a feeling for a minute that the throwout bearing fell off, but with the new clips, it doesn't seem like it would come off easily at all.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Is the fork on the transmission positioned parallel to the engine or is it facing more torwards the inside of the drivers side. If it is then your throwout bearing came off and you have to take your tranny back off.

Well, there is a couple inches of play back and forth on the lever, but in general it is parallel to the engine.

I've seen on some searches on http://www.se-r-list.org/archives/ that some people have had to remove the lock nut on the adjustment end of the cable in order to get it tightened down enough.

I have not had to do that but if that way doesn't not work and you are sure that everything is right then you can always put some washers in front of the locknut it will work. Let me know if it works

It now looks and feels as if everything is installed correctly, i'll give it a test run tomorrow... I had to remove 1/2" off the end of the cable, and now the engagement feel right.

Its been a long weekend.... (my first clutch)
