Re: 68 Ranchero EFI swap using all Ford parts thread


I've used this style on a couple cars after melting clutch or speedo cables. And none have melted since. Heat Sheath - Aluminized Sleeving 010418 | Purchase DEI, CryO2, Ny-Trex, Boom Mat & SPA Turbo Products | Design Engineering, Inc. - Thermal Performance Products

Re: 68 Ranchero EFI swap using all Ford parts thread


I got thinking about it and came up with a theory. I live at 6000 ft, but everything I do (go to the store, to work, the dr., etc) is "down the hill".

The last couple clutch cables have held up until I got home, meaning I could drive (down the hill) to work with no problem. On the way home, since I'm going up hill, I'm on the throttle / under load constantly for 30 minutes or so. I'm guessing that's why it gets so hot.
