Clutch problems

So I think my clutch went out. Just wanting so input from others. I started noticing about two weeks before it "went out" that I was losing some power.. The about a week later it started to squeal when you pushed the clutch in. Also when I would give it gas while in gear the rpms would rise but I really wouldn't go much faster. Finally I heard a clunk and I lost tension in my clutch pedal. I could no longer shift gears. You can push the clutch in with your finger basically but it doesn't let you shift. I bought a complete clutch kit to get put it. My cobra has about 110k miles on it so I'm sure it needed a new clutch. But does this sound like the clutch it's self or something else that has to do with it? Thanks

I think that flywheel will work, but you can probably just have your existing flywheel resurfaced and it will be as good as new.
It sounds like your clutch cable might have broken. Or the clutch fork possibly popped off of the pivot ball. If you have to replace the clutch cable, use only a genuine Ford factory part, or Ford Racing as a replacement.
