Broken clutch quadrant?
OK, here's the story. I was out putting around the other day, and all of a sudden I went to shift 1st to 2nd, and the clutch pedal went about halfway down before there was ANY resistance whatsoever (normally it starts right at the top), and when I went to shift it was near impossible. When I let the pedal back out, the catch point was super low, and it didn't get any better. I limped home and had a look underneath to see what was up. The quadrant seems to function ok, but there is a definite slack in the cable, did it break or is it the cable stretched? In any event I think it's time for a new setup. Who makes a good quadrant and cable? Also, how hard is the cable and quadrant to install? Thanks for the input.

That happened to me too, the self adjuster is probably stripped. I bought the ZOOM double adjustable cable and quadrant, the cable snapped though so I used the stock cable and it works great. I found it easy to install the quadrant once I was able to get myself into position, I just pulled the pin out, pulled the old quadrant off, put the new one on, and put the pin back in.
