Clutch assembly set up question

Morning guys and gals. I have a question. Someone once posted the part number for a clutch / pressure plate setup that's offered at NAPA. Can't remember the brand type, but suppose to be one of the better brands and this company makes the NAPA brand. Only difference is the packaging. If someone could help me out I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

I say go with an Exedy Mach 1 and call it a day.

I am curious about Centerforce in these cars.

Just get a whole new clutch assembly if yours is bad.


Exedy Mach 400 and call it good. Nice light pedal feel and will hold as much torque as the stock input shaft can take.

So that would be good to use with the stock cobra engine as well? This is for the engine swap I'm doing. The original clutch definitely needs replacing. I don't really know the condition of the cobra clutch seems ok in the car but can't really drive it as is. I figured since I was going to have it out, I'd have the flywheel checked and install a new clutch assembly. Btw, my son and I started the swap yesterday evening. Really exited to be back in the shop again even if it's only to direct him. Still under doctor's restrictions.

They use the exact same flywheel and clutch. Well, whatever the crank bolt count is anyway. 8 or 6 bolt, whatever yours is get a new 11" flywheel assembly and an 11" (01-04GT style) clutch.

Might as well and the quadrant too.

I like the aluminum quadrant and fire wall adjuster, only use a stock Ford Cable. Have used a few Centerforces and really liked the easy pushing the clutch pedal in in traffic with not so good knees. No slippage or chatter and good longevity.

An easier clutch that grabs would be nice. My Exedy is heavy.

Mine wasn't. The Mach 400 was super light.

As for the cable and quadrant... ONLY Max Motorsports/OEM (same) cable or you will have binding. No adjustable cables, no aftermarket, don't do it. You have been warned lol.

Quadrant... Max Motorsports again. For the firewall adjuster if you can find a Fiore microclick secondhand do it, they are far and away the best. If not... the UPR microclick knock off is ok. I do not like the allen set screw ones, they are a pain in the *** vs the microclick.

Remember when you set your cable tension the throwout bearing is REQUIRED to be spinning at all times. What I do is get the car on ramps, start it with the wheels chocked and someone in the car with their foot on the brake/e brake set and then shine a flashlight into the bellhousing by the clutch fork and tighten the adjuster up until the TOB just starts to spin. Then go 1/4-1/2 turn tighter and you are good, that is your good preload.

Oh, also a new fork, throwout bearing and pilot are a good idea, again, OEM Ford. Just get them from a dealership. Just FYI, OEM Ford and Ford Racing are not the same. OEM is always best for these.
