It Fits 69 to 70 Mustangs (and other Fords using similar clutch pedals)
This kit will allow you to modify your clutch pedal to a later model-type quadrant setup for the installation of a cable-operated clutch, especially useful when installing a late model T-5 or Tremec manual transmission.
Unlike any other aftermarket cable clutch conversion, this fully welded kit offers several advantages:
- Welding the fulcrum bracket to the stock clutch pedal will never allow it to come loose from constant use.
- Transfers forces to the cable directly in line with the clutch pedal – no twisting motion to bend the arm.
- Fits with the MustangSteve POWER BRAKE BOOSTER conversion
- Fits with MustangSteve BALL BEARING CLUTCH PEDAL SHAFT Conversion (visit the Ball Bearing Clutch Pedal page)
- Virtually eliminates clutch chatter caused by loose clutch actuation linkage.
YES, it takes a bit more effort to install this conversion, but you already know that the easiest stuff is seldom the best.
This setup requires you to remove the clutch pedal and pedal support for the installation of the fulcrum bracket.
You need to take the pedal out to replace bushings and get rid of those big springs anyway when converting to cable operation.
You will be rewarded with years of trouble-free service and simple cable replacement access should you ever need to replace the cable.
The MustangSteve CABLE CLUTCH CONVERSION will make your car feel like a modern car with a smoothly operating clutch.
NOTE: Later model 10″ or 10-1/2″ diaphragm type clutch is required.
FORD RACING King Cobra works great.
(10-1/2″ clutch requires late model bolt pattern on flywheel).
Using this kit with a Toploader or T10 Transmission:
This kit is designed to be used with a T-5 or Tremec conversion and a cable clutch. You will have to do a little fabrication if you want to use the cable clutch with an original Mustang standard transmission.
In order to make the cable clutch work with the original type bell housing, you must install a cable-type release arm and a new pivot bolt (fulcrum) in the bell housing. You will need a Mr. Gasket replacement fulcrum bolt and a Ford release arm from an 87-93 5.0 Mustang originally equipped with a T5. You will need to have an aluminum plate welded into the bell housing and then thread a 1/2″ hole in the plate for the new fulcrum bolt. You will also need to fabricate a cable housing stop to go outside the bell housing.
