I did try these guys and they did not have any - maybe they got some new ones in from the most recent build.

Hi Graham,
I saw an article about this stating that there is definitely some slack and flex in the adjustable plastic quadrant, but who knows. I just know I am happy with this! And I never felt great with the plastic system.
The guy who makes them is in Alabama and has about 5 left. He doesn't have it online anymore so I will drop you a note.
If anyone else is interested let me know.

Thanks Uwe - the clutch quadrant was driving me nuts - it never felt good with the uprated clutch I have in the car. I don't have much room to put a hydraulic unit in - so this makes me really happy. I drove it today and it feels really good.
Step by step.....

Hi Uwe,
The diameter is slightly bigger. I made a small modification to the footbox to allow it to clear the frame in that area.
After fitting I watched the action very carefully - the cable runs cleanly through the firewall to the engine bay. There is no snagging or bending.
And the good news is that the clutch action is now so nice. Amazing difference.
Attached is a picture of the pedals before refitting.
Adjustment is so easy now!

OK new approach. Its for a Mercury, but the Quadrant is the same and I think this will work well.
Will publish photos if when I get it together.

I chickened out and had Cobra Automotive do it. Nick Acton would be a good man for this too.
Its all perfect now!
