Default Classic Roadster clutch cable questions

I have %^$#@# had it with hydraulic actuated clutch setups. My combo is a 351W with a Tremec 3550. I have tried external slave cylinders and am currently running a Tilton hydraulic throw out bearing. This is high maintenance stuff; something is always giving out or is not set up right. Hence, I am looking to run a cable setup. The car currently has a Automatic tranny pedal brake box and a Wilwood clutch pedal. Can I just call up Classic Roadster and order a Manual tranny pedal box and swap em out? Don, DV, how much is a manual pedal box? Will the brake booster remain in the same postion? Can one just run a clutch cable from an 87-93 Mustang with an aftermarket firewall adjuster? I am tired of being held hostage by hydraulics. I understand cable setups just fine. Thanks for any info guys.

Hi Curt,
Just wondering if you moved the clutch pedal back towards where the brake pedal is hanging? The clutch pedal on my assembly (1992 kit) was mounted further forward (towards firewall) then the brake pedal on account of being for a cable instead of hydraulic. I too am running the Tilton setup, and in order to have gotten enough travel for the clutch master cylinder I setup a "tempt" triangular bracket on the pedal which let me get more travel, BUT was entering the cylinder in a downward angle rather then straight. I just redid the pedal assembly, moving the clutch pedal back (almost alongside where the brake pedal hangs). Get me you email address and I'll send you some JPGs.

Curt, the pedal box is the same. You need to order the clutch pedal assembly. The cable is from a 1979 Mustang Napa # 615-1008. You can use the firewall adjuster. If you want to order it give Pete a call @ 1-888-722-6272.

OK, I am calling Pete Monday morning. Anything I need to be aware of with respect to a 87-93 Mustang Bell housing (scattershield in my case) with a Centerforce dual friction clutch?? Throw is adequate?? Interference with clutch arm in tunnel?? Oh, Don, the cable used for a 79 Mustang is the same all the way up to a 95. At least that is how Ford Motorsports and everyone else describes them (79-95). Just trying to cover the bases. Its too damn nice out not to be driving this car.

Curt, the part # I gave you is 79 Mustang only. That cable is different than the others. It's adjustable at the fork. Everything else should be a bolt in. There is plenty of room for the scattershield and fork.

OK. Got the right cable (Napa) and the pedal / sleeve from CR. The cable, as with all mustang cables, has the L shaped bracket. Do you guys use this bracket or just cut it off and make a new bracket. Seems like the L shaped bracket is made for a flat surface. Not sure there is a flat surface available. I was thinking of cutting the L off and attaching the cable with clamps in two locations to prevent movement. Also, the cable runs pretty close to the header. I have mine running between the motor mount and header.

I bolted that l bracket to the inner fender and held the cable away from header with brake line clamp. Clutch operation is fine.
