Clutch Cable

With the Tiger floor mounted pedals the brake pipes are routed along the lower chassis rail.  Unfortunately this is where the clutch cable would normally be tethered.  There is pretty much only one routing where the clutch cable does not foul the brake pipes - that is in a vertical curve.

I fabricated two brackets and used rubber lined p-clips to hold the clutch cable in this configuration.  The clutch action seems nice and smooth and the cable stays clear of the brake pipes, oil filter and lower steering column.

This large bracket came in a multi-pack from Screwfix.  It is normally used to hold kitchen cupboards together.  After adding a 90 degree bend in the vice it is just right for the job.
