Throw out bearing question

Does the TOB ride against the fingers on the pressure plate at all times? I look through the clutch cable adjustment cover and the bearing is against the fingers.

It should be in the end of the shift fork, and move when the fork moves

It is but the face of the TOB is constantly in contact with the pressure plate fingers. Is this normal since its a cable type system?

I believe it sounds fine what you're saying...im sure your clutch is hydraulic but its probably very similar to mine (minus the slave cylinder) and the TOB sits in the clutch fork with alot of room to mess with so I dont see any prob if it touches the clutch forks as long as your clutch is adjusted properly...IMO im not a rocket scientist..

Re: Throw out bearing question

No, it should not constantly contact the pressure plate fingers.
If it does then you will quickly wear out the bearing and/or fingers.

The pivot ball is at the top of the bellhousing and the clutch cable is on the bottom. So to keep tension on the cable it would have to keep contact on the fingers. So what am I to do.

Your setup is the same as mine the pic TH showed is not of our setup just of whats goin on with the TOB...
Im not sure your exact problem,but the clutch fork will ”flop” around if the cable isn't connected..not exactly sure what it rests against but...man I might have to go take some pics..i dont have the dust cover over the fork so I may be able to get an inside pic..

How does that work? Just keeps tension on the fork pushing it back? Where does it install at? Sorry for all the noob questions but this is the first time I've ever worked on a transmission.

It goes between the clutch fork and the bellhousing cable guide.
It allows you to properly adjust your clutch so the TB does not ride on the forks by keeping the slack out of the cable.

Then it s not properly adjusted and eventually the TB will overheat and seize up.

I'm not sure that is made for my year. Apparently that website makes nothing for the 94&95 mustang.

It should work. If it fits the 86-93, then it should work on a 94-95.
When you get to a PC, look at the Word document. Then it will make more sense and you can check your car to see if it is the same, which I am sure it is.
You could go to a hardware store and buy a spring and cpvc plastic pipe bushing and make your own too.

This will stiffen the pedal as well as fix the tob problem right?

Yes, that is what it is supposed to do.
It takes up the slack so you can adjust the clutch to where the TOB does not ride on the pressure plate fingers.

Let us know how it works out.

I always had my clutches adjusted where they were fully engaged with the pedal barely off the floor, I do the same thing with my bike. With a street bike I know this is the preferred set up for spirited riding.

I keep mine adjusted to where the TOB isn't contacting the pressure plate fingers and adapt my left foot to wherever the pedal ends up.
It works for me, as the same clutch, pressure plate and TOB have been in my car for the last 10+ years.
I can deal with a less than ideal clutch pedal position much easier than replacing the clutch components more often.

I honestly never looked at it(TOB). Guy put clutches in my cars for $150 and got it back the next day with the pedal adjusted the way I liked it. My King Cobras never lasted that long, was on my 2nd one in year 5 or 6. Lol that car saw 5k everyday, sometimes twice!

Whatever works for each owner.
I don't let anyone else touch my car other than my cousin. Between the two of us anything that needs to be done, one or the other of us can do it.
Just one of my many little idiosyncrasies.
