no problem dude, just post the link here an i'll check it out when i get home, im not doubting you.. but if your clutch cables smoking you have some serious issues... you might want to check all your grounds as it maybe trying to use the cable as a ground.. i've seen weird shit like that happen before, but not to a clutch cable

Which link do I post? Also, what could be traveling through the clutch cable of all things? The only thing I could think of is the two grounds that ground on too of the I take manifold, I have the ground to my window switch as well as my maf to it. That should be fine though? I spliced into the blue\pink wire from the ecu for my window switch, i was told that was the rpm wire? Other than this I haven't done much rewiring.

What about the battery negitive that goes from the batt to the chassis Then to the engine?

I actually have a battery relo kit to the truck, I used welding lead to run it from the bay to the truck (positive at least) the negative is grounded in my trunk. Could that be the issue? It's ground the frame and the cable is touching frame and using it as a ground? I don't see how that's possible if the cable is wrapped in rubber?

Sounds kinda ghetto dude.. im not fond of improperly done batt relocates..

Anyway, the cable is metal an it connects to the trans right but at the other end it connects to the pedal which connects to the chassis, see where Im Goin with this?

Try running a big cable (if you dont have the stock one) from the engine to the chassis..

It's legit lol, it comes off the Maine harness an runs along the brake lines all the way to the back but the ground yes I see where your going, should I run another wire from the battery & ground it to the block??

U should be ok with just a cable from the chassis to the engine. For testing purposes you could use jumper cables
