Oh boy... BOTH types have a metal arm. The cable style has an arm that lays flat horizontally across the front of the transmission and has a "loop" in the end for the cable to attach. The hydro has a metal arm that comes out of the front of the transmission with the end facing the radiator. There is a semi-hemispherical place on the face of it that allows the indexing of the clutch master slave cylinder piston.

If this doesn't make sense to you, I suggest you Google some pictures of both transmission types to help identify your transmission. Use a '91 Integra and a '98 Integra as examples.
