I have a 67 coupe with an automatic 3 speed transmission. I would like to swap it to a T5. I have seen many conversion kits available but no one seems to carry the clutch pedal assembly. Does anyone know where I may find one. Also does anyone know of any good articles that will describe in detail how to do this swap.
Thanks

you will have to call salvage yards to find the clutch pedal assembly, I was unable to find one resonably priced.. so i took one from an 88GT and retro modified it to work with what was already in my car.

i was hopen to find one for less than 50$ the cheapest i found was 85$ from some place in Georgia and that was me drvien down there to remove it(i live in wisconsin so that was out of the question)...so he wanted 25$ for him to pull it.. then whatever shipping was.
I wasnt about to pay that much.. i was on a tight budget.

were are you getting your T5 from? are you getting a parts car? or just pickin up a tranny?
There is a lot of little things the parts car will have that just a tranny wont come with.

I was going to spend $1,100 for the tranny and clutch new and $350 for the T5 conversion kit. Then whatever for the pedal assembly. Is there anything else I would need? Oh and whatever a shifter would cost too

CJ Pony Parts can hook you up with the bone yard parts you need and the conversion kit(i.e. the crossmember, driveshaft, etc.) :cool:

I am in wisc doing the same thing, I ended up buying mine off ebay for big money. But it was a nice original part so I didnt feel so bad about paying that much for it.

I would say around 200 isnt bad for one. Check with mustang steve, after I bought mine I found out that he had one with the clutch quadrant and ball bearing setup on it. I think he wanted like 225 or 250 for it which is really good with those parts already installed. Shoot him a note, you might get lucky he might have one available.

I am also doing a T5 conversion. I am installing a new clutch brake assembly pettle in my 68 but I am finding out that the brake push rod that goes into the master cylinder is too long. Did I do something wrong? I bought an adjustable one but it too is still too long. Maybe I just need to push the rod deep into the master cylinder when installing? I am worried about doing this because it seems like the brake will always be engaged if I do.

Just another one from Wisconsin and T-5 swap. Lucky in that I'm starting out with a manual to begin with. Found this site handy in explaining some of the pit falls to watch out for. I'm actually staying with my mechanical linkage and the old T-10 bellhousing with adapter plate.

I did look on E-Bay and the prices are about as stated above. Salvage yard or E-Bay looks like the only places.

Just happened to find this in the site's classified, not sure if it sold or not but looks complete, even the clutch pedals.

Is the pedal for disk brakes - on a manual brake car? Or vice-versa? I guess you could get a shorter adjustable push rod.
