Hey guys, I bought this 2000 mustang about a year ago from this POS of an owner who has failed to have stated anything correct about this car except it was GT and had a 5-speed in it. He claimed, when i bought it, that it had a stage 3 racing clutch in it. I honestly did not care about it that much that he raced it because it was a "clean car" so i thought at first... Within the first 4 weeks of owning it i was learning how to drive the car, first manual ive owned that ran the clutch became constantly tighter as if it was binding and it even made inconsistent popping sounds. Pretty soon it got so bad you could not even push it down far enough to start it, and if you did you would have to keep it in first and that is the only gear you had. Since i am enrolled in an Auto Shop program that my school has it was towed up there and i began to look at it. My original plan was to replace the clutch with a factory clutch, my teacher then pointed out that the cable also had to be replaced since it was an aftermarket cable as well as the quadrant. Once it was racked up i removed the cable and found it was seized up and that was the issue all along. To make a long story somewhat shorter, i replaced the cable with a factory style cable and replaced the quadrant with the OEM quadrant as well as removed the firewall adjuster. Now after i got it running again ive been having the issue of the limits of the OEM set up. i have about 1/2" of free play before i actually start to pull on the clutch cable and within the first 1/4" is when the clutch actually engages. Would an aftermarket adjuster work with the factory quadrant and cable or will i have to upgrade to an aftermarket cable/quadrant, And will this help with my clutch issue or will i need to start planning on replacing the clutch? Thanks for the help in advance.
