And it...

    T-45 issues

    I have 2000 mustang gt and it used to grind when you would go from neutral into 1st and same thing for reverse. To get it not to do that you had to put it into 2nd than 1st and 5th than reverse for it not to grind. I recently installed a new clutch cable (fire wall adjuster design) and now I can...

    Mustang shifting issues, very heavy clutch pedal and very hard to shift

    Hey guys, I have a 2002 mustang gt that has become increasingly hard to shift. The clutch is annoyingly heavy (to the point where it is challenging to feather it) and shifting the gears takes a ton of effort. I installed a new adjustable clutch cable kit a couple of months ago, which made the...

    TR-3650 Clutch Installation

    Just finished installing new clutch in TR-3650 (2002 GT), but there seems to be very little clearance (About 1/2 inch) between the clutch fork and the transmission housing (see first pic). Is this normal? Seems to be very little throw. Wondering if I did something wrong during install. Any...

    I was going 10-15 mph down an alleyway when I hit a bump I did not see. There was a very solid sounding hit and slight scrape.

    Any benefit to upgrading the top loader bell housing to a T5 bell when doing a T5 conversion?

    Hello all. I have a 1966 with a 302, 4 speed manual. I am doing the T5 swap soon and am debating on using an adapter plate to connect the T5 to the original bell housing, or "upgrading" to the T5 bell housing. Is there any functional benefit to doing this or any negative to not doing it? I plan...

    Last night I was out in my car cruising down the highway when I went to change gears, and it locked me out.
