    Default Clutch cables 807 motor with 395 g/box

    Hi All

    Advertisement


    My memory is failing me. Just extracted a sad-looking clutch cable from my Gordini faker which runs 807 motor and type 395 gearbox. The cable I removed is significantly shorter than a 12 spare I have on hand - it measures 630mm mount-to-mount as opposed to 800mm for the 12 cable.

    Is the 630mm cable from the 18GTS - or is it another model?

    Someone please enlighten me!

    Thanks
    Keith

    You can do this or you can shorten it your self.

    I shortened up an R12 cable by cutting off the inner at the clutch pedal end, removed the inner cable from the outer sheath. Can't remember what end now but managed to remove the sheath fittings from one end and used one of those skinny cut off wheels to shorten the sheath to the required length.

    I done the same for the inner and then put the inner inside the sheath.

    Then went to see a cable making guy to crimp on a swage fitting back on the inner and then re-install.

    Of course if you are not upto all this you can get the cable guy to do the whole job for you.

    Yes, could make the longer 800mm cable work with some creative re-routing if I had to. However, the 630mm sheath is a nice straight trajectory which slips neatly between alternator and brake master cylinder, also slightly tensioned away from the twin weber throttle cable which is at the right hand side of the setup.

    Shortening the longer cable is definitely an option, but oddly I have now discovered a just-serviceable second 630mm cable among long-forgotten spares salvaged from a similarly set-up car. So the 630mm cable must be a thing - maybe for LHD versions of the 12 rather than the RHD version? Curious.

    Thanks guys

    The 630 mm cable is from the R17 and R15 with the 807 engine.
