Default A&C Clutch cable

I have an A&C kit that I purchased a couple of years ago. I purchased it built since i am PhD student. Long story short, the clutch cable snapped at the head and I am having an impossible time finding what it came from. I tried 82' mustang and some others and nothing seems to be even close. I emailed A&C but they stated that they use hydraulic clutch kits now. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Default Clutch

A&C's are designed for a simple hyd system. A picture would be very helpful but if you want to go hyd a wilwood MC and a slave from a 1960 ford pick up work well. Slave available from Napa $22.00
Which engine does your car have? If it's a FE I can trace my bracket for you

After breaking my original cable I decided to switch to hydraulic.
You can buy a new bracket from A&C for the Wilwood master cylinder.
Depending on what tranny you have you can buy a kit that comes with a slave cylinder and mounting bracket
I can tell you it will be the best thing you can do.
The hydraulic clutch operation is like butter compared to a cable operation.
I had to eliminate my power brake booster.
There was not enough room for both.
I replaced the booster with a Corvete brake master.

I purchased my hydraulic slave and mounting bracket kit from www.autoworksparts.com
it mounts to my T5 tranny and pushes the clutch arm instead of pulls like the cable did.
I purchased a new pedal box complete with AC aluminum pedals, Wilwood master, Corvette brake master and a cover for the box from my good friend Pete Clark of Fast Times Rods in Dunkirk, NY. 716-366-1806 Fast Times Rods - Hot Rod Cars, 41 Willys, Willys Gasser
Tell him Jim Farrell from Cleveland told you to call him.

If you click on the camera in the upper left there is a picture of my engine compartment on the first page you can just see the pedal box with the aluminum cover and the wildwood master, On the second page you can see a picture with the way it was before.
I hope this helps.
