  1. How to get the rubber boots on!
    Overall
    80%
    The plastic sleeves are important, as they prevent the metal cable rubbing against metal (i.e. the chaasis member at the front end, and the exit of the Bowden tube at the back end). So the rubber boots are important, as they hold the plastic sleeves in place. But they're a nightmare to get onto the cable unless you know how. After much fighting and swearing, we found a solution: a pencil that has a rubber at the end (or "eraser", for those of the American persuasion). Dig out the pencil eraser from its metal clasp at the end of the pencil, leaving the metal clasp empty but making sure not to damage or dislodge it. Grease your pencil, then insert the pointy end of your pencil into the rubber clutch cable boot (making sure you have it the right way round!), and slide it up your pencil. Insert the end of the clutch cable into the empty metal clasp at the end of your pencil (you may need to gently expand the clasp if it doesn't quite fit). You can then slide the rubber boot up the pencil, along the metal clasp and straight onto the end of the clutch cable. The first boot goes all the way up to the pedal end, sitting over the long plastic sleeve to keep it in place where the cable would rub on the chassis member. The second boot goes over the shorter plastic sleeve, and then onto the back end of the Bowden tube, holding the shorter plastic sleeve in place to protect the cable where it exits the Bowden tube.

  2. Good quality kit
    Overall

    Relatively easy job (none are often that simple on an old bus!)

    The rubber boots are very difficult to fit. One at the engine end went on fine with a lot of grease and elbow grease. The other end of the conduit was another story though. Just too snug to the body to get it on properly. This wasn't made easy by the extreme tightness of the boot mind you! Another mm would make them a touch easier to fit without making them prone to fall off me thinks!

    Anyway. Very happy to be able to change gear so effortlessly now :)

  3. Bowden Cable
    Overall
    80%
    Purchased this kit along with grease and it has everything you need to replace the clutch cable on my 1973 Bay. the wife's cousin came round to fit it. The old cable had been rubbing metal on metal more than half the rope threads had gone, the rubber boots had gone completely. The supplied rubber boots worked fine for me just remember to thread one on and push it up to the pedal end of the cable. We had trouble with the Bowden Cable it was too small to fit over the steel tube under the van the cable was threaded through. We had to skim some of the inside of the bowden tube steel fitment to get it to fit with a grinding bit on a drill. Then trapped it in a spanner and bang it on with a hammer, apart from that works a treat.The old Bowden Cable had a nylon end to go over the tube under the van. Just Kampers could mention this to their supplier. if it has been a problem for others.

  4. A must have in spares
    Overall
    100%
    While heading home on an evening approximately 200 miles from home, the cable snapped, thankfully I had a spare in the back. I've now bought this as another spare. I had difficulty with some plastic conduits which had shredded while inside one of the metal pipes. I had to rip it out to fit the new cable but only as a temporary bodge because it is now rubbing metal on metal. It would be useful if you could buy spare conduits separately from the cables so that each cable can last longer!

  5. Fine, but not as it should be
    Overall
    80%
    The cable is good and fits fine which is the most important part. Annoyingly the rubber covers, that are meant to keep water and dirt out of the conduit are rubbish, so you end up chucking them away. They are too tight to fit over the outside of the conduit and the hole is too small to get the cable fitting through. It's almost as if they want the cable to rust so you have to replace it again in a few year's time.....
