Finally got it adjusted right. Guess when I thought I had it right, I didn't. All I needed to do was to be sick, stay at home instead of going to work and try to adjust things in the dark when you can't see squat by a flashlight. Turns out that instead of a little slack in the cable ( and I mean little ) I needed some tension. I tightened the snot out of it and discovered that there was a "spot". If I had the pedal there, it would shift in and out clunk free. I backed off the adjustment until the spot moved closer to the floorboard and voila ! Clunk free and smooth shifting. I guess what I was feeling before was the over center spring. Let that be a lesson to you all. Start tight and then back off. It will save you some of the headache I went through ...
