EA82 clutch cable lengths

Recommended Posts

Can someone take some measurements of a LHD clutch cable from any EA82 variant including XT and post in here please? I plan to do same with RHD. Our XT cable is different to wagons sedans etc and NLA. Wagons etc are. 

I guess length of outer and   centre of each pull end of inner be best

Lucky fella with photo allowance ! Thanks CZNY

 

I also used a yellow tape, with yellow casing, almost thought my pics had miraculously loaded up.

Worst rules and tapes out have metric and imperial on the same face - affects accuracy :(

You know some years ago I thought LHD clutch cable  would be shorter ( but I was envisioning a clutch pedal next to the hump :)  )

Only ever driven auto LHD on our roads here - just as well no clutch to deal with !!

 

A whole extra 5 inches give or take - that idea blown away then - be nowhere to take up the extra. They retail about A$110 here

Not a photo allowance here at USMB, jono........a photo allowance on host site.

As to that cable in LHD cars, there has to be a huge "S" shape to it as installed to go from LH drivers side foot to clutch fork right?

Yours would get cooked by my turbo or cat. RHD takes a not the best angle out the firewall then a curved 90° up to the fork. Must say I like the external support bracket I found in ,99 impreza

Long shot on this one @Step-a-toe as I haven’t seen you on the forums in a while, hope you’re well. 

Can you tell me where you sourced your new L series clutch cable from? 

I’m trying to help out a mate with one. 

Cheers

Genuine order from the dealer but I hear that these cables are now not available

Hey mate, there you are! 

Thanks for that. We’ll be hitting up FROG on Monday, hoping for the best. 

Cheers
