Classic-vw.co.uk sell a cable actuated clutch mechanism, give them a ring for cable advice, usually very helpful, or convert to hydraulic with the kit to weld on the steering column (retrofication.co.uk) I went that route, it works well and eliminates the cable pulling through the bulkhead issues, bit more work involved but when done it’s worth it 👍

Thanks for the reply, car already had the bulkhead issue but it's been fixed so won't happen again
