Can someone post the instructions. I seem to have misplaced mine and have some questions about setting it up with the Lokar cable.

thanks

Kerry,

I can't recall that mine came with any instructions. What sort of questions do you have?

Chris.

The clip that was installed on the pedal had 3 washers on it and it spun freely. Does the Lokar clip with the nylon spacer get tighten down or should it have play in it?

On a different note, looks like I need to shorten the inter cable on the 36" Lokar stainless cable. Anyone else have to shorten the cable?

I know Mark at Breeze included instructions, I just can not locate them. Thanks

The cable is not perfectly straight going into the firewall. Is that ok?

Looking at the cable as it comes thru the firewall to the pedal-yep,laying in the driver footwell- it should be coming out of the fitting centered (w/ no bending) as well as possible.Do anything you can to make this a straight run and the smoothness of the gas pedal movement will benefit.On my car, I actually drilled a new hole thru the firewall.Good luck

I got the cable lined up pretty good.

The cable seems smooth but it takes more effort than a new production car. What is your experience with the lokar cable?

Mike the TP comes with two clips, the bent one is for the Ford EFI, or at least the older one FFR used to use and a straight clip which will work with the clevis on Lokar cables. Not sure what the Chevy one looks like so I can't really say.
On the latest EFI cable that ffr includes they changed tings and it comes with a white square plastic block. This will work with a slight mod, you use a sharp blade and make the inserted section round and then cut a groove so it fits over the cable

2001C5, it should be as straight as possible but a little is not a problem. The straighter it is the less wear you'll have where it comes out of it's sleeve.
It shouldn't take a lot of effort, what cable are you using? if it turns too tightly that will tighten it up.

I have the stainless polished Lokar cable but will be ordering the black cable in the am.

The stainless cable binds like crazy.

I added a nylon washer to the straight clip for the Lokar setup and it lines up better.

The ss lokar cable is crap.I am really surprised they even sell them.My mkII came w/ an SS cable. I did a lot of adjusting, aiming, etc to the whole system and got it more driveable. Then ordered a black cable which w/ no other changes about halved the throttle effort.
