I've swapped in an 88 Mustang 5.0 T5 in my 65 Couple w/ a rebuilt 289 I plan to start today (never stated yet w/ this set up). Before I re-installed my headers I set up my Mustang Steve Cable clutch system. Install we fine. The clutch cable is just looped from the firewall to the bell housing in a nice smooth loop w/ no interference and the clutch petal is pretty stiff. It’s nowhere near the feel of a stock 88 GT Stang clutch and too stiff for my wife to operate (I bet I never say that again). So I have been thinking..... these are all stock parts and the Mustang Steve kit is proven so what did I do wrong? The clutch kit was a set from Auto Zone for a stock Mustang so the pressure shouldn’t be too hard. The only think I can figure is.....I didn't use any alignment pins that attach to the flywheel and align the pressure plate housing. I just aligned the pressure plate, torqued down the bolts correctly and in sequence flush w/ the flywheel. Is there supposed to be a gap between the flywheel and the pressure plate housing? My housing is flush with the flywheel (touching each other). My thinking is if I had used these pins it would hold the pressure plate housing off the flywheel little (maybe 1/8" to 1/4"), reducing clamping pressure to a stock feel? Or maybe the pressure plate just needs broke in? I will post in the 5.0 forums and on Mustang Steve site too. Thanks in advance!!!
