clutch cable needed 1973
« on: March 18, 2017, 07:10:00 PM »
I removed my clutch cable to lubricate it, it is working ok now, but looks really old. I decided to buy a new one. That's when I discovered this is another one of those parts that you can't find anywhere. I spent a couple of hours searching online, no luck. I did find slave cylinders listed for a 1973 model, and I know for a fact that they used cables at least through 1974. I also believe I found a cable for a 1974, but is says does not fit 1973. 1973 seems to be an oddball year for parts. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you

There's a cable specialty shop that installs a new cable  into the original sleeve in Portland Oregon.

Hummm... . The Pinto never used a hydraulic set up. So, the listing for a slave cylinder would be wrong.  When I converted my '73, C-4 Automatic to a T-5 I used the cable from a '79-'80 Pinto. It hooked properly to the firewall and '73 clutch pedal, and fit properly to the T-5 thus I'd assume a 4 speed too. I've never heard comment that there is more than one clutch cable but others may know better. Still my bet is that they are all the same.

I salvaged a 73 sedan and the Bell housing and cable had a circlip setup for adjustment on the cable. The Bellhousing also has a cast in tab with a slot rather than the Full circumference tab with hole that is used with the Locknut style cable housing on my 72. Otherwise the housings appear identical.
 Anyone else confirm? :D
