The "little" clutch cable

I went to change out my clutch cable today, only to find it's not broken. However, there's a short cable running from the fork to a lever on the bellhousing that is broken. Anyone have a part number for this? Where can I get one? Every search I've done online just gets me the big, long cable that goes to the pedal.
By the way, it's for my 86 TC

It's commonly referred to as the "dog bone" cable. Only place I've been able to find one is the dealer. Get ready to pay though. Last time I called, they were $39.

I know people have replaced them with a long bolt. There is a right up some where. Then you won't have this problem again.

forced4.com also carries them for $45. They also ship fast. Everytime I hit the jy and see and SVO or Turbo TC I grab the dogbone. I always have a spare in the trunk.

That bolt method looks cool too. I like the fact that you can adjust it.

SWEET! I had no idea it's called a dog bone, that would have helped in my search. Anyway I'm definetly going with the bolt. I was actually thinking of something just like that as I was laying under the car.
Thanx everybody!

Does anybody have a part number or source for the needle bearings inside the pivot arm? Mine are kinda crusty.

Regular 2.3 Mustangs have them too. I just used my last spare this summer for my 93. I need to hit the JY...

Autozone is the only place I know that can get them. They run ~$10 IIRC. Pioneer is the brand, something like CA653 is the part number. I have a spare in each of my cable clutch cars.
