    Long story short im gonna be doing a 88 turbo coupe drivetrain swap soon. Its hydraulic in the turbo coupe but the fox body is going to be cable. Currently the fox body has no drivetrain but was a stick car so it has the pedals but thats it. I have a bare T5 cable bellhousing but thats all I...

    Hello so I'm replacing my e-brake handle and was thinking to also replace the front cable that attaches to it at the same time. My question is can I use the adjustable front cable meant for the ford racing M-2300-K brake kit and adapt it into the the stock brake cable set up this way I could...

    Hey everyone, I did some searching but couldn't seem to find a thread to my exact issue - probably because I don't know much about manual transmissions. I've had this car for about 8 months and this is my first manual... Anyways, the car refuses to shift into gear when it's turned on. I can...

    Hello forum! I have a 96 5speed GT. I bought the car a couple months ago, and have drivin' it off and on (weather permitting) Anyway, the clutch feels 'Really' heavy, pushing on it, i need a lot of force, and when holding it in my leg starts to shake from the weight. It has a new clutch...

    My 1989 Mustang GT with AOD transmission will not shift past 2nd gear. I had my heater core replaced by an off duty mechanic this morning. The guy really does seem to know what he is doing and works in a shop building pro street cars during the week. After leaving, my girlfriend, who was...

    My headers keep burning my speedo cable? It there a better way to run the 75" cable? Also, what color gear for the cable should be in the transmission with 3.73 gears? I have a reddish one. I think it is 19 teeth? I had a white one in but it was off and then the speedometer stopped working. It...

    I'm not entirely sure how long this has been going on, but my parking brake has issues. Either the springs aren't strong enough, or the cable is stuck, but the driver's side brake seems to stay almost all the way engaged. The other side works fine, but is not enough to actually hold the car. So...

    Im a college kid with a 66 inline 6. I just replaced my transmission and basically i realized most of the cabling and the whole assembly of the parking/emergency brake is messed up. I tried looking online, but does anyone know where i can get a whole new kit, or if there is a way to upgrade the...

    for my 99 v6 it calls for a 65 mm throttle body for a performance upgrade. could i use any 65 mm ford throttle body and will i get the same performance out of a stock 65 mm or a aftermarket 65mm?

    It's an automatic, and the needle bounces around whenever I'm driving it. At least it used to. Had to take the speedo off the back of my dash to replace some bulbs. Somehow, in the process, the speedo cable got yanked out of its tube and now it wont go back in. Car runs fine, its just now I...

    Hey, Im trying to hook up my mini tach in my 1967 mustang. It is an Australian part that takes the place of the clock blank. In order to access the back of the dash I have to remove it but there is a cable that is preventing me from pulling the dash out. The wire/cable runs from the dash...

    Hey fellas, I'm having trouble finding the battery cable kit that I need to replace. I believe the owner before me spliced cable together and held it together with a medal crimp, which is causing it to get way to hot and short out killing everything in the car. I need to replace this but the...

Finally have a 5spd 5.0! :gringreen I work on my own cars and rarely ever let shops do anything for me, so...

    I have a 1997 Mustang GT. I have recently replaced the clutch and transmission with stock parts to stay on the cheap side of things, it was kind of an emergency... but anyway, My problem now is that when the car is cold, the clutch engages fine with no problems. After I run the car for a bit it...

    Maybe it's just a design thing, but the pedal end of my 1969 convertible's accelerator cable keeps "popping off" the pedal lever bar. I guess I will add a small piece of twisted wire to the end of the rod just to hold the cable in place, since I cannot think of any reason not to. Anyone else see...
