    Cable Clutch Conversion

    Guys,
    I know there's been loads of posts in the past but does anyone know any conversion kits available, I'm not happy with the idea of pulling against the outer, it seems a bodge to me.
    I know it works but I'd rather find the proper unit.

    Any ideas on a supplier?

    Tony,
    Unfortunately I've been asking Paul for one for a while I think he's having problems with his supplier.

    Any ideas of anyone else who does them?

    You could try Magnum Engineering. I understand they do a complete hydraulic conversion kit too.

    Guys,
    Seems Paul @ Abbey could be getting some in soon but I'll explore the Magnum route too.

    Cheers

    Its not a bodge. it was standard practice on cable clutched minis. If tou route the cable carefully and make a solid support for the top end it works realy well. Mines done nearly 4000 miles no probs.

    RE: Cable Clutch Conversion

    Hmm.. looked at my 'box/clutch today, I'll be fitting the engine shortly.
    A couple of points, using the Pligrim method, there would seem to be a lot of strain on the alloy casting, spread the load with a plate maybe? What happens if the cable snaps? engine out? Maybe a window cut as an access in the side of the bell housing? or would that weaken the bell housing?
    I have a peice of pipe welded to a flat bar that came with the kit. It looks like the widget in the Pilgmim sheet on the conversion. Is there a reason to fit this, as at the moment I can't think of one?
    Cheers,
    Dave.

    RE: Cable Clutch Conversion

    I'm currently looking at how I can fit the hydraulic setup into my Sumo as I'm not at all happy with the way in which the cable conversion works.

    I looked at a Dax setup at Detling on Sunday and got the idea from there. I can see two choices - to either fit the master cyliner into the top of the footwell probably with a remote fluid reservoir, or try to fit the original master cylinder to the front of the bulkhead as there seems there is just enough room.

    Obviously the pedal box would need some adjustment made to it, depending on where the master cylinder is placed as the pushrod needs to be operated in the right direction. I'm looking at making the bracket in the next couple of weeks and will let you know how I get in, if anyone's interested.

    Cheers,
    Tony B

    Tony,
    Should be in possesion of my new cable kit from Abbey Sportscars early next week, could post a picture if you like. From what Ive seen its really well made and would save you a lot of work.

    RE: Cable Clutch Conversion

    Yes please. Would be interested to know how heavy/light the clutch pedal is once fitted. Also, how much did it cost?

    Thanks,
    Tony B
