    :ph34r: i got a 91 integra clutch cable and put it on my car. I hooke it up to the tranny first, then i went to the firewall and fed the cable through, now the cable is about an inch to 1/2 and inch to short to fit on the little resting cylinder thingy for the cable end inside the car. How do i get this freakin thing to fit.

    a 91 integra clutch cable was to short!??!? normally they are like 3" to long... umm
    try hooking it into the cluster 1st, and finding a shorter way down to the holder. i havent heard of it not fitting b4. if it still doesnt fit, u have to move the bracket that holds it up until it does it.

    Make sure the clutch is all the way up, unhook the end off the tranny, and hook the end up under the dash first.

    After hooking it up under the dash, it's MUCH easier to fiddle with the end in the engine bay. Usually just removing the bracket from the tranny, putting the cable through the bracket, then tightening the bracket back down will work for yah.

    No the cable isn't too short in the fire wall.
    You should hook up the pedal end first.
    Once you have, the other end will reach the
    throwout arm but the plastic adjuster screw
    won't stretch up to go on the bracket.
    I had to cut and reweld my transmission clutch
    bracket.
    It cost me $15 at midas
    If you would like a photo of the bracket, I'll send you one.

    I took my 90 dx clutch cable to the parts store and
    compared it to a 91 Teg cable and they were the
    same length and same adjuster.
    The problem was the JDM tranny bracket was to high.
    I think the problem is that the JDM clutch cables are
    shorter and different overall because of right hand drive.
    I was able to have it cut and welded an inch lower and it works well
    and has adjustment.
