The clutch cable adjustment nut that threads into the top of the gearbox housing has broken off inside the housing - making it impossible for me to adjust my clutch. Does anyone know the part number for that piece so I can replace it? I'm having a helluva time finding it online (read: I can't!).
The laydown box cable adjuster screw is over .300".
The atlas screw in is about .240". This is on 2 "N" and over 6 "NA" featherbed gearboxes (and one matchless). Not one of my norton clutch cables will slip thru the .240 adjuster. While not all still have good threads in the outer cover, they all show evidence of residual threads. I have 2 cables with the adjuster on them with NO ability to take them off with out demanufacturing the cable. You of course can put a new replacement adjuster on your old cable, if you can find one, and can do cable repair.
All my commando boxes have the drop in the hole nipple.
That's what I see here on my hardware?

Dave typed "nipple". That's very funny for Dave, if you find mammals as amusing as I do... Got my Atlas cables from Norvil. Les at Norvil will help you out. I've found he calls back in short order if you have silly questions, and sets you right. He stands behind his products/nstuff. Laydown, eh? Nipple.

The adjuster is part of the clutch cable as the ball will not fit through it. Now maybe someone can tell me the difference between the ball end cables and the pear end cables, other than the fact that the pear ends do not fit through the AMC box.
