Why '89? The '89 used a cable clutch, not a hydraulic. If he goes with a stock setup, then everything will be '66. No guesswork, no need to memorize each part source.

i did this in my 66 and the hydro clutch was totally easy and i love it. the pedal has a great feel and the stainless hose i used is totally out of the way.

I even pieced the parts togethr from an offraod shop here close to the house and it was pretty cheap too

Thanks for all the advice!! I will either go with stock linkage or the hydraulic setup. At the moment, I only have the pedals, not any of the stock linkage, so either way I am starting from scratch. I have saved the link to the hydraulic setup, so I can refer to it if I go that route. For the time being, I will locate a T5 bell housing and then decide which clutch setup I want to use.
Again, thanks for the help!!!

FYI

i have two extra T5 bell housings and also a next to new hurst shifter for a T5. If you are interested let me know and maybe we can make something work.

I also have an extra T5. it is one of the weaker ones but it is complete and works great. i had it in 66 for about 6 months. i took it out while trying to find a vibration issue and installed a cobra spec that i found on craigslist.

Monsterbilly,

I think I saw your stuff advertised on Phoenix Craigslist. I am actually following up a lead through my next door neighbor on a bell housing, but I will let you know if that doesn't pan out. I have family in Avondale that could pick it up.

I already have a World Class (if I remember right that's what they are called) T5 out of a 91 Mustang, so I just need a bell housing.
Thanks,

Talking

Well, it's been a year and a half with no progress on the Mustang (I have been hard at work on my 73 Firebird Formula), but I just got "permission" from the wife to spend some money on her Mustang. I will be ripping it apart in the next couple of weeks to start the 5 lug disc brake conversion and install the 9 inch, then I will be yanking the 6 cylinder and starting the process of installing the 302 and the T5. Per the original topic of this thread, I still haven't decided on which clutch setup to use (cable or hydraulic), but I am leaning toward the cable, just because I will be getting a 80s/90s Mustang bell housing.

Both of my sons (10 and 6) are excited to help, as is my 12 year old foster daughter. This should be fun!

I am sure I will have lots of questions along the way!
