Hard To Select Gear When Hot

Hi, My Super Seven 2l Pinto has just developed a serious 'clunk' when releasing the clutch. Changes gear & clutch drives OK but heavy clunk just as the peddle presure is released. Seems to happen more often when its hot. Does this sound like a cable/quadrant problem too?

Regards

If it's not the cable then I would think it's the oil it's very common for people to just put ep90 oil in instead of mt75 oil, that is of course if it's an mt75 gearbox (should be). I would just change tho oil and see if that makes a difference.

The 2wd cosworth clutch cable is longer and can be routed away from the mani. It's a common mod to cure this problem.
