Re: T 5 trans swap Cable help

I used the Ron Morris Performance setup on my Granada. It bolts right on in place of the old Z bar linkage.

It works like the brake cables on a bicycle. If you end up using this setup, be sure that the cable housing can move freely or it will be very stiff.

I recommend using a heat resistant sleeve over the clutch cable.
