Does this stretched cable syndrome apply to the Samurai as well? I just bought a stock 88 Samurai for $700.00. The guy I got it from claims he replaced the clutch about a year ago and for the first few weeks it worked fine, then the cable stretched and he couldn't disengage the clutch. He has been driving it to work and back (a distance of 4 or 5 miles each way) Ã‚Â most of the time since then by starting it in first and shifting by sound and feel. I rode in it and he went through all five gears with nary a grind or crunch (wish I could do that) and the clutch was obviously engaged and not slipping. The Haynes manual makes replacing the cable look like a piece of cake. Ã‚Â Is there anything I need to watch out for that the book doesn't reveal? And lastly, Is any one brand or vendor to be prefered or avoided over another?TIA.Mel
