Adjustable clutch cable nut

I have an adjustable clutch cable and I seem to have lost the nut that threads against the clutch fork. Is there any where that sells that kind of nut with the rounded end or do I have to purchase a new kit?

It's just a regular self-locking nut with a nylon insert. Take your thread pitch and go to Lowes.

Ditch the entire clutch cable before it snaps on you and leaves you stranded, all adjustable aftermarket cables are junk and snap without warning. Usually within a year of install...

The standard Ford cable from Auto Zone that is like $30 is the best cable you can get and will last for near the life of the car...Or you can be a MM fan boy and buy a Ford cable from them for $70

The regular ford cable from autozone is not threaded. I need one that is threaded so I can adjust it.

As for it being a self locking nut the one that originally comes with it is rounded so that it fits in the groove and turns agains the clutch fork.

Like SlowBox said just go to a hardware store and get a self locking nut . And as for the adjustable cable hate , I've ran a BBK adjustable cable for 2 years and now it's on a buddy's car and it's still standing up to the abuse .

I've got an adjustable cable that's been in service for 7 years so yes they last. As for the nut I know the piece your looking for but don't know where to find one. May look for a tapped collar and use two nuts to make the jamb nut.
