Where can I find another clutch cable for this Samurai? Seems like autozone, napa, pepboys all have to order it.

Car Quest? Dealer? I've heard some guys say OEM is a better cable?

Got lucky and found one at O-Reilly. Not sure where a local dealer is, so I went ahead and got it so I can get it done today. Nobody seemed to carry one in stock, guess I was just in the right place at the right time.

Becareful with the aftermarket cables.
The mounting point is usually plastic on them,while the OEM is metal.
Not really that much of a difference in price to skimp on quality.

OEM is the only way to go. Try getting spares for the trail.

Very wise words. I'll be looking to get a spare to have along with me. Thanks

O'Reillys -- the official parts store for Acks' Suzuki fleet!

You might want to take a look at the article on clutch cable adjusting at Ack's FAQ. It can be a bit tricky to get everything properly working if you are unfamiliar with setting up a new clutch cable. Do a search for clutch cable at Ack's FAQ (click on the banner, below).

Hope this helps!

Thank you sir Ack, took it out last night at 360 and it seemed to work just fine the way I had it set up. Good to know where all the "how to" articles are. Quite helpful

Thank you sir Ack,

Just Ack. :D

Although I am 1/2 British, I don't think I qualify for a KBE because of anything that I have done so far in my life.

I'll leave that to Limeys like Paul McCartney and Elton John. :band:
