T-5 questions

Stock t-5. When I shift it's really hard to get into reverse and grinds a little going into a couple of gears feels as if I'm not push clutch all the way down but it's to the floor. Is this a adjustment issue or change the clutch issue. Please don't let it be change the tranny issue

Probably a clutch adjustment issue.

Hook your foot under the clutch pedal and lift it up as far as you can.If you hear a series of clicks, then it needed adjusting.
If you don't hear anything and there is no change in your clutch, then you might need to install a firewall mounted clutch adjuster to make further adjustments.


If you need to install the firewall adjuster, then you should also consider replacing the clutch cable and quadrant.
There is also a clutch cable free play mod in the Useful Mustang Info thread you should consider doing to keep your throw out bearing from riding on the clutch pressure plate prongs.
Maximum Motorsports has the best cables and quadrants, visit their site and read about them to see what I mean.

Put some manual trans info in the Useful Info thread.
One link is for a High Performance rebuild, 650 HP.

Yeah, that's the problem with high performance parts like those.
You end up with more money in an old component than you would have spent just buying a complete new component.
Pretty impressive what they can do with a T-5 though.
I have a PDF on stock rebuilds somewhere on my PC if you need it.
