clutch linkage

so my clutch went out today.. its not the actual clutch, but one of the plastic mechanisms behind the dash/ inside the firewall. i started peiceing apart the dash to get at it, and am wondering if anyone has any diagrams of the dash or input, as what to watch out for, ive never pulled the dash before. also looking for diagrams on these plastic linkage parts i need to get to..
thanks
sean
btw as far as the gas issue: egr valve was stuck open but the check engine light was never on.. probably just disconnected

Glad to hear you got it sorted out.

I'm going to check my manual and see if I can come up with diagrams for the clutch quadrant and dash. Check back in a little while.

quadrant

you guys have any opinions or personal preferences on quadrants?? im still running a stick clutch, obviously putting in a billet quad, but whats the deal with the adjustable quad with the knob that goes on the firewall vs. the kits with an adjustable cable? i was told the knobs wear out faster.. opinion?? and where do you do the actual adjusting on the "adjustable cable" kits

I went with Steeda's kit and I think it's great. You can adjust the cable down at the fork by tightening the nut on the cable or you can adjust with the knob on the firewall. I have had it for a few years with no problems.

I'm still running the stocker but I've heard good things about the Steeda unit as well.

You are better off getting the whole Steeda kit. The first link you gave is a knockoff but the second one is real. Dynamic makes good products but I bought a cable from them and somehow it seized and broke. The blue Steeda floor model they are selling in the second link is better. I think the adjustable cables are longer than the non-adjustables.
