I'm planning on it......but I just ordered one.....I'll still take it though and keep the shipped one for a spare....I'll have some cash with me.

I can meet you at Mario's car.....I'll probably be hanging around there a little bit especially if he has shade.......I'm the old fart with silver hair......

We made it to the VW Nationals and it was a great day....Temperatures were in the 90's and I think I got sunburned a little bit since I'm too stubborn to use sunscreen.......
Watched Mario make 5 passes and got to check out his car........It's sweet!!!!!

I need to say thanks the Turboedbug for getting me a clutch cable along with the adjusting wingnut since mine got lost when the cable broke. I met him at the races and he gave me the cable personally. What a guy........Thanks Bud!!!!!! I owe ya!!!!
We got home around 6:30 and I couldn't stand it so I went out into the garage and installed the cable. After a couple hours of grunting and muttering under my breath I managed to get the new cable cut to length and installed.
It seems to work like a charm. I'll give it the old test tomorrow morning at 5:30 AM when I head to work........

Thanks again Turbedguy......you helped me out a lot since this week is packed...... and waiting until Tuesday or Wednesday for the cable would have put me in a pinch to get it ready for Friday's trip to Marioland and Burger Meet.

Mine is the same way; "or two" is the proper trick to keep the loop from slipping. When I asked about it when I got my first buggy I was told that was the most common way to do it.

I've had the three clamps for 14 years now....with a cut cable. It wasn't the clamps that gave the problem. The cable broke so I measured carefully and cut the cable again after putting a little solder on where I wanted to cut it.....keeps it from fraying.
I then used the same three clamps and put it back together.......tested it going to work and back and it should be good for another 14 years....... :wink: 8)

I think my cable was shortened too but not by me; been that way since the early '90s. The only change was when I converted to an 091. Too much weight on the cable can cause the cable to "dance" so be careful :wink: :lol: . Wear is on the horizon for sure :shock: .

Art, I got thinking about it and I think I did replace the cable not too long after I got the buggy in the early '90s. One of the strands had broken at the loop and I think there was another strand break some where near the clamps... as I kind of remember. No Bowden tube on my buggy so there is a long unsupported run as I remember which is where the "dancing" comes from.
