Looked it up on the map and takes about an hour and a half to get there. Good place for BBQ, probably have my daughter in tow...

Left you a reply on the other post about another hundred Ranger owners in this town alone, need to start spreading the word to the ones with a genuine interest about the site, get a contingent going.

Lookin forward to the gathering. Do have a small problem at the moment with the clutch cable on the fritz. Was coming to a stop and the swedge on the cable by the pedal broke off and looking for a place that has the steel swedge replacements. Been a while trying to drive back to the house doing the synchromeshing with the throttle to change gears without using the clutch.

rangers are hydralic, so you are looking for the cable off of a foxbody mustang, right? 8)
Reallllly wish it was that simple. I had problems with the header being in the way to use the mustang cable, ended up discovering :lamp: an e-brake cable from the explorer rear was just what the clutch needed. Really smooth action but the weak link turned out to be the steel swage that's attached up to the fabricated clutch bracket, had some corrosion on the cable from a while back and was only a matter of when it would break. Can't find anybody that carries the steel swages and trying some alternatives. I'll change it over to hydraulic if i can get a hold of the external slave cylinder that mounts up to the t5 bel housing bolts. Crazy when nothing is standard about the drive train anymore.

This is the third time tryin to figure out a reliable clutch cable system and just about reaching the end of my rope with this one. Tried using a steel crimp to hook it back up again and only lasted for 2 pumps of the clutch pedal before sliding out again. Almost have to consider ordering a whole new e-brake cable or let the wife know how much it's going to be to convert over to the hydraulic system. If that wrecking yard near your house has another intact 5 ft e-brake cable from an explorer, i'd definitely see about making a trip out there to pick it up. Only takes 10 to 15 minutes to get it hooked up and driving again.

Good news and bad, turns out Schucks/Oreillies can get a replacement cable assembly, too bad it won't be here by Saturday. See if I can get over there for the next meeting. Kickin myself for not checking on a new part sooner, oh well, live and learn.
