Use your best judgment...


I agree. Very little, if any, is spent without some reason.

Ok I'll just deal with it and hope this is the last time I have to **** with it lol. And as for the clicking coming from the clutch fork when the car is running, but the click stops when you rest ur hand on the fork, I'm assuming that problem would be fixed by a cable/adjuster kit? Can't really hear it unless you are down by the dust cover.

Anything else I should look at while the transmissions out one last time?

When the TOB is adjusted correctly, it should be resting against the PP fingers but you should still be able to turn it. So if it takes a firewall adjuster and quadrant, that's what you will have to do.

Just take your time during reassembly and try not to pinch the wiring harness or anything like that...

^yup :thumb;

I just used the spring to keep my pedal from being floppy. It likes to flop compared to the factory spring loaded setup.

@azurebluemach

What kind of cable/adjuster kit did you use? Maximum Motorsport?

I got my quadrant and cable on a warranty claim with a new transmission. Mine is a Ford Racing adjustable cable and aluminum quadrant. It's okay, but I have to adjust the cable a few times over a year. The adjustable cables suck lol. I am ordering the MM kit soon though even though mine still works. I want a firewall adjuster and a more stout cable because I'm going to hit the track more since it's not my daily driver anymore. This setup has a well known history for being the best. The most important point being that it comes with a Ford non-adjustable OEM cable.

Shaking clutch pedal until pedal is pushed

Managed to get everything out back together last night by 4am haha. Goal was accomplished and I made it to the car show this afternoon! Thanks so much for all the help stray and azure! Was definitely a tough week but besides a still a slight vibration in the first inch of pedal all is well!! I'm assuming the adjuster kit will fix that problem?

Awesome!
And your car looks great!


Hopefully, FINALLY, it is just a matter of getting the cable/TOB adjusted correctly...
