[DML] Bill's Mod Re: Crossgate Cable Brackets



Anyone who has attached the upper crossgate cable bracket to the transmission while it is in the car (after clutch replacement for example) knows what a PITA that is. Here's my solution:

Notch the upper bracket (the triangular shaped one) so the cable can be inserted from below. This allows you to attach the bracket to the transmission while it is still on the ground, then slide the cable into the bracket after the transmission is in the car. The lower bracket (the long skinny one with a 45 degree bend) will hold the cable up no problem. 

Most of the stresses on this cable are fore/aft, not up/down. Notching the upper bracket does not affect its ability to hold the outer sheath still.

Just my $.02.
