My 1980 P200e has developed clutch issues - hopefully these can be solved by adjustment.

When studying the situation I noticed that somewhere back in time someone had revised the clutch mechanism.

Note that a length of metal tubing is on the cable between the lever and the clamp nut (or thimble or terminator or...). Seems like an excellent idea, to get the clamp nut away from the lever.

Possibly ran it with an expansion on. This might make it slightly more reachable.

Good thread. The tool shown in the link is a great solution to a potentially head wrecking problem.
