    so, there's no slack in the cable? can you still lift the bar on the trans. by hand? it should be right at the point where you can't lift it by hand, and there shouldn't be any slack in the cable. the pedal should be resting in it's normal position.
    what cable are you using?

    Yes that should be right. There should be no slack number one on that bar you can pull up with nyour hand like said before. Where the clutch cable goes into the firewall it should have locked in place and the wire from there inside the firewall should be connected to the clutch pedal. Then after that is all done adjust the pedal using your hand right near the bar and screwing that plastic round thing down until you can't screw it with your hands anymore or until no slack is felt in the bar. Then try your cluctch and if that still doesen't work then maybe the hole you drilled is messing up the pressure you are suppose to place on the clutch.

    ok so let me get this right once everything is connected... my bar should be all the way up and the cable hella tight? without the clutch pedal engaged

    exactly....well, it isn't all the way up. it's just up as far as you can lift it by hand or whatever. when you depress the pedal, it should go up more, but that's a different story.
    *edit* well, technically, there should be SOME slack. like, an eighth of an inch or something. someone put it in one of my posts about the clutch cable for my swap a while back. let me know if you want me to dig :) honestly, just leave like a tiny tiny amount of slack in it. i don't know why it's there tbh.

    ok well thought i had it figured out but the clutch cable is still way to tight to connect everything.... do i have to change my bracket where it holds my clutch cable adjustment to a b18 one?? or is the b16 bracket the same? cuz i know im doing something wrong here

    can you post some pics of the situation?
    also, does it look like you can get it in if you can take the bracket off, put the cable in it, then put the bracket back on?
    and did you loosen the adjuster?
    what kind of car exactly do you have? more info needed.
    this is the pic someone gave me for my b16a to 88crxsi swap. hope this helps.

    i was gonna say i didn't think the 93 cable would work. but..... if it's working, then nevermind that.
    don't know what to tell you about the firewall peice/grommet/thing.if it won't stay, could you epoxy it or something? somehow attatch it?

    maybe get a peice of metal, drill a hole of the correct size in it, and either weld/epoxy/something it to the firewall over the other hole. maybe that would solve that problem. it's hard to see one of the other pics, but it looks like you have the cable in the bracket correctly. i'm going to assume that you have the ball at the end in correctly. so, it looks like the only thing that's not right is at the firewall. if when you get that fixed, it's still too long, then i would say it's the wrong year cable.
    *edit* you said it was a automatic? did you drill the hole for the cable?
