Now you are bringing back old memories. I once had a TD while stationed
in ENgland in the early '70's. I broke a clutch cable while down at
Brands Hatch race track and the RAC was able to Band-Aid a repair to get
me back to RAF Lakenheath where I was stationed.
After getting back, I started looking for the replacement part and was
unsuccessful until someone suggested that I go to the local farm
implement store and see what they had. The cable had a loop in one end
that fit onto the pedal assembly and the other end was attached to a
threaded rod for adjustment. The Ford Tractor place where I went had a
cable with a threaded rod at each end. So I bought one and cut it in
half. I used a cable clamp to form a loop and ended up with two cables
for a very low investment. I never needed the spare, but it was good
