    Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the McLeod High Performance Hydraulic Clutch Line Upgrade for the 2005 to 2014 V8 Mustang. The McLeod hydraulic clutch line's going to be for the manual S197 V8 owners that are looking to get away from the weak factory plastic line and replace it with a durable line that's not going to fail or stick and will improve pedal feel. This is a direct fit for the S197s that have a V8, including the 4.6L, the 5.0L, and the 5.4. It's gonna give some piece of mind, as well as a little performance improvement. So this is a braided stainless steel hose. It's going to take the place of the plastic clutch fluid line that the Mustang comes from the factory with. This right here is your factory line, and you can see the difference between the two with the braided line. The factory line does have the potential to expand, fail, or split over time, or even under high heat. The additional pressure in the line that's created by aggressive driving can also cause a line to start sticking or fail, and I'm sure you can imagine this is not a fun experience. It also creates a sloppy feeling clutch. The braided stainless steel line is going to work to resist to that expansion under pressure, and it's also a high flow line that will give better flow, which is how this line is superior over the factory line, especially if you're an aggressive driver. The braided stainless steel is also gonna give protection and reinforcement against heat, abrasion, and road debris. It's 36 inches long, which is not too long to have too much line, but it is long enough to route nicely and away from the headers. Because this line is going to increase the fluid flow capacity and because this line does not have the unwanted expansion capabilities that the factory line has, it's also going to improve clutch pedal feel. No expansion outwards of the fluid means only a direct pressure, and that means a firmer pedal feel and you can expect to feel a noticeable improvement in grip and bite of the clutch. As far as price, you're looking at just over $60 for this line right here. There are other versions of this line available if you didn't want to run the McLeod. Both Ford Racing and SR Performance have clutch line upgrades. Of course, Ford Racing is gonna be more expensive, and the SR Performance is going to have a more affordable price, so those others are definitely something to consider. The install here is not very difficult. It's actually pretty easy. All that you're really going to need is a few basic tools and a small pick. I'd also have a shop rag or two for the drips, and maybe some extra fluid in case you end up needing it. You might have to move your intake tube away from the firewall so you can get to the clutch line, and the top connection on the firewall can be removed using the metal pick and then you can pull the line out of its fitting. I would just slide the clip back into its place after you get the line out, and then you'll need to raise the car on a lift or on jack stands, either one. Once you locate the lower connection from the underside of the car, on the driver side of the trans, the line comes out the same way. Just slide the retaining clip back until it releases the line. You can pull the line out of the elbow, and that's all it takes to get the stock line out. The new line is best installed by fitting it into the firewall first and then install the bottom, which pushes into the metal retaining clip in the fitting. After this, it's just a matter of bleeding the clutch, which is a lot of pumping the pedal. Just make sure to check the fluid reservoir and refill it if it needs it. Once the pedal feels normal, you're set for a test drive, and then just check the fluid level again once you get back. It's as simple as that. It's a pretty easy install that should take an hour or two, and is a one out of three wrenches on the scale. Wrapping things up here, the McLeod High Performance Hydraulic Clutch Line is stainless steel and has increased flow capacity. It's good for both piece of mind and a touch of performance improvement from the clutch. The line doesn't allow for expansion, and its braided stainless steel is a definite upgrade over the factory plastic line. You can check it out more online right here, at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Performance Upgrade. The 2005-2017 manual V8 Mustangs came factory equipped with a plastic clutch fluid line. This plastic line is fine for normal daily driving, but it can split or fail under the high heat and additional pressure caused by aggressive street or road race driving. So, replace that weak stock plastic line with a High Performance Braided Stainless Steel Hydraulic Clutch Line from McLeod for peace of mind, increased fluid capacity and much improved clutch pedal feel.

    Quality Construction. McLeod manufactures their hydraulic high flow Clutch Line from Teflon-lined braided stainless steel for durability and long life. The inner Teflon hose resist expansion under pressure while the braided stainless steel covering provides additional reinforcement against expansion as well as protection from abrasion and road debris. Measuring 36" in length, McLeod Hydraulic Clutch Line includes two AN-4 male plug-in fittings.

    Application. This McLeod High Performance Hydraulic Clutch Fluid Line is designed as a direct fit upgrade replacement for the 2005-2017 V8 Mustangs equipped with a manual transmission.

        Will I need to add transmission fluid after installing this, and, if so, can I add something like Royal Purple Synchromax without doing a full change? I am not sure what fluid comes in my 13 Mustang GT.

        • Installation of the McLeod High Performance Hydraulic Clutch Line Upgrade does not require you to add or change your transmission fluid.

        Does the clip goes in before the line when reinstalling? I've seen directions that say the clip first and others that say the line first. confused.

        • You will slide the clips in first when installing the line through the firewall. For the master cylinder you will need to slide the line into the master cylinder then install the clip to hold in place.

            Worthy upgrade for a very reasonable price

            Much improved pedal feel and predictable clutch engagement for a low price! I bought this clutch line to reduce some of the weird clutch pedal feel the factory plastic line contributed to. (frequently got a soft pedal return when shifting near redline..hard to explain that one or figure out the mechanical reason for it) I finally took the time to install after having it for several months...Wow-why did I wait? The pedal feels like it has a direct linkage to the clutch plate now. The install was fairly easy with the car raised about 10-12" on stands. Bleeding wasn't bad. I had a little bit spongy pedal for the first couple pedal cycles after the car sat for several hours.. Cycle the pedal a half dozen times to firm it up.... I didn't have the vacuum pump setup to bleed, only the "pump the pedal" method. On the third morning after the swap the pedal was firm all the way at the top. On my V6 model, I believe i could do it all from the top if I had to do the install again. I was able to get my hand and arm between the engine, bellhousing and firewall to reach the line fitting on the transmission. (noted: on my 14-V6 the lower retaining clip has a tang to prevent pulling it completely out of the fitting. just pulled it out to the stop and then the line could be removed. The upper clip came out fully, so keep a grip on that one)

            Definitely an upgrade

            You can tell right away the difference between the OEM clutch line great quality material made to withstand the elements specifically heat worth the money and time it is somewhat hard to install on the bottom by the transmission there's barely room between the elbow and wall of the car and transmission you could easily loose the clip to install it if not mechanically inclined pay a mechanic to do it save you the headache but it's worth the upgrade..

            Awesome

            Little hard to install with jack stands but was well worth it. Once installed and bled the clutch felt a lot better than the stock one. Actually felt like I had a clutch on road test this gave a lot more bite. I feel that my clutch will last a lot longer now. Very Impressed.

            Must-have upgrade

            For the price, you can't go wrong. Honestly might be a bit long but it fits great. The length give you plenty of room to keep it out of the way if the headers at least. Wish they had included a better elbow but the stock seems to be fine I suppose. Definitely improves clutch feel, and clutch engagement seems to be much better. The catch point seems to have changed slightly and I like it better this way personally. Haven't been able to try shifting at the limiter but it seems like it'll fix the clutch sticking like I'd been experiencing.

            Great replacement over cheap factory line!

            The install is extremely easy and the hardest part is just getting the car on jack stands. After that it only takes a few minutes to install. Be careful not to lose your clips! I also used a zip tie to make sure the line won't rub on anything or get too close to the engine and exhaust manifold. The line is made better than the cheap plastic line that comes on the car. I chose this line because I was having issues with my clutch sticking to the floor under wide open throttle. This helped with that problem and made the car feel better. Ultimately the stock clutch was the problem for my application at 105k miles but this line gives me some extra peace of mind!

            WOW

            Original problem was an expanding clutch line when it got hot causing poor gear engagement and a spongy pedal now with the McLeod upgraded braided stainless steel line I have more clutch!! Smoother shifting and elimated my high RPM shifting problem with the line being longer I was able to reroute the line plenty far enough away from the headers with ease definitely worth it’s weight in gold! WELL DONE!

            Not what I hoped for

            I installed it in around 20 minutes. I bought it to help with getting locked out of gear. Let's just say I just ordered the Barton short throw shifter to try and alleviate the stress. Install is a breeze and simple. Access to a lift is helpful but could've done it on Jack stands too. If you've experienced your clutch pedal sticking down after you lift your foot this will clear up that issue.

            Fits like a glove

            Installed, careful you don’t loose those paper clip retainers, had fun looking for mine for half an hour, otherwise it’s a simple install, also looking for the grommet that goes around the clutch line into the trannie Bell housing , make sure you save and have all items/components removed, otherwise this half hour job can take you a couple of hours.

            Fitting didn't fit in master cylinder

            I finally got around to installing this and had an issue with the fitting not wanting to seat, the clip wouldn't snap. I ended up taking a micro flat file an enlarging the clip slot and it finally snapped in, haven't yet tested for leaks so fingers crossed it's all good, will update if so. BTW I had to replace the master cylinder about a year ago with an aftermarket one which I believe was my issue
