Cruise Control Doesn't Work

Hey everyone my name is Tyler I'm new to the forums and have run into my first problem with my 5.0. I recently installed the Boss Intake manifold and Custom tune onto my car. After installation I decided to go on a spirited drive and discovered my clutch pedal sticking down whenever I shifted above 7000rpm. So I did some research. (Apparently a common problem especially for you guys driving a BOSS) I came across the clutch pedal fix that involved removing the clutch assist spring and cruise control shutoff switch to stop the pedal from sticking down. I did this and it solved my sticking clutch pedal problem however I discovered my cruise control isn't working now. Have any of you guys had this problem after removing the clutch pedal spring. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Capt. Obvious over here suggests you look at the cruise shutoff switch you just monkeyed with. That's probably the issue. It kind of needs to work or the cruise will default to "off" for safety reasons.

I was thinking that about the shutoff switch as well. And its looking like I can put it back the way it was and have cruise control and a sticking clutch pedal or leave it off and have a working clutch pedal and no cruise control. I guess my real question is to those of you that have done the clutch pedal fix and removed the assist spring and cruise control shutoff switch. Does your cruise control still work?

Thanks hoping I can have the best of both worlds. Nothing more frustrating than having the extra ponies and not being able to use them.

You have to have that stitch hook up or you will get a service light but the assist spring will help from sticking to the floor at high rpms

I've install the boss and replace the clutch line and put a barton two post bracket on and still can't shift pass 7200 rpm

Did you do this to your mustang? If so can I just leave the Cruise control shutoff switch hooked up and in place? I didn't really understand why I needed to disconnect it in the first place. But did read somewhere that someone broke theirs by leaving it on and hooked up. Don't see how it could break though.

I heard the stock pressure plate is garbage above 7000rpm. That's probably the issue. Sometimes it won't even let me into gear above 7200rpm. Doesn't grind just acts like it has something blocking it and wont go into gear until rpm's drop.
