In stock form, you Mustang’s clutch leaves you with limited adjustability. With aftermarket accessories, there are three main parts that help to control the clutch from the moment you press the pedal - the clutch cable, clutch quadrant and firewall adjuster. These items help to complete your clutch connection and improve your power delivery. The stock components are usually made of weak plastics only good for daily driving; these become worn and bent over the years and they should be replaced with stronger components. Here are some benefits that each part will provide.
Adjustable Clutch Cable
* Replace stretched out factory cable
* Improved clutch feel and less pedal effort
* Adjust pedal height when combined with a quadrant
* Replace flimsy stock plastic quadrant
* Improved engagement for flex free shifting
* Keeps cable in place
* Adjust clutch engagement point
* Adjust with one hand on firewall
* More adjustability over stock
Clutches and Flywheels are very important components of any manual transmission Mustang; it’s where the engine starts to put the power to the wheels. When accessorized correctly, you can take full advantage of the clutch and use all of its potential gripping power! When upgrading your system, another option would be a hydraulic clutch conversion - this would replace the traditional cable system with a modern hydraulic linkage for a smoother and more manageable clutch operation. Upgrading your flywheel or other clutch accessories, such as the adjustable clutch cable, clutch quadrant or a firewall adjuster, will give you the adjustability you’ll want and need.
