Clutch Pedal & Cable Conversion in Early Mustang

HOSS is thinking about converting from automatic to 5 speed. Early model clutch pedal sets are getting hard to find, but alot of Mustang owners want to convert to a cable & quadrant set-up with the 5 speed installation. One way to do this would be to use the clutch & brake pedals with a cable quadrant from around a '93 FOX body and use the small power brake booster as well from a 4-cyl 'Stang to gain power brakes. Mount these in your original brace. Some fabrication/modification will be required, but I have seen this working in a Mustang.

I used an 83 set up and merged it with my 65 pedals. Has worked fine for 4 years and I have not had to adjust it. I used the newer std trans with the OD. just under 80 in second and 115 in 3rd. I have never checked top speed. A lightened 65 gets a little funny at speed.
