Hydraulic ( throwout bearing ) clutch conversion complete

By FordFanboi

Filed under: 1966 Ford Mustang (Coupevertible)

Installed the following new parts:

Aluminum 13lb flywheel
Mcleod clutch
Mcleod pressure plate
Mcleod hydraulic throwout bearing
Wilwood 3/4" clutch master cylinder
Manual trans starter with 0.1" shim
Rebuilt the Richmond 5 Speed - replaced 2nd gear and all syncros.

After ditching the 34lb flywheel, the throttle response is VERY noticeable. The clutch engagement is far too quick however. I'll be researching mounting options soon.
