Another Fox body newbie

Hi all...

Just got it 2 weeks ago. 93 GT 5.0/T5 with 200k miles. Is in great shape and runs very strong. I was surprised at how smooth and quite the motor is after all these miles. The PO installed CAI, Ford Racing headers, Flow Masters and all else appears to be stock. Minor electrical issues (turn sigs, hood light...) and 3 or 4 pinhole rust spots - primarily on the hatch under the rear wing. Paid 12 bones. Anyway - the clutch is the biggest issue for the moment- PO installed Steeda quad and adjustable cable - and a new OEM clutch. The pedal effort makes it almost undrivable. He stated that the clutch had ALWAYS been hard...Any advise for a newbie?

Great site - thanks for any info.

Regards,
Carl

Gotta describe your clutch compaint better.. could be cable is seizing up, TOB isn't sliding on the input shaft or any number of things..

Welcome to the site! and that engine should provide plenty of trouble free driving for you!
