    Clutch cable breakage (72)

    My clutch cable broke at the end close to the gearbox. On the cable, there is the reference GEMO 424180, which seems to be correct for a 72.
    The cable broke exactly where the cable touches the gearbox, and there are even signs on the gearbox housing where the cable rubs.
    Is this normal that the cable rubs the housing? Was something wrong installed in the past or is some protective part missing?
    Fitting a new cable in the channel is this a rather straight forward job? Any suggestions or tricks on how to install a replacement cable?Name:  221A27C1-C729-4430-8584-F02362BDD5E2.jpg

    How old was the cable? Its a straight foward job, just make sure you adjust for 3/4" of free play and set the pedal stop at just after over center. How old is the clutch?

    I own the car since 1996 and I cannot remeber the cable was changed in that period. In 2017, when the engine was re-built (and the engine was out), the clutch was also replaced.
