Hey Guys

I have been reading about hydraulic clutch conversions and more to do with the pedal side things.

I am converting to hydraulic, I have a standard 66 manual pedal box with the stock power booster. I have found a few conversion kits online but none seem to confirm if they fit with the booster in place.

I am hoping someone can link me to a conversion kit that will work with the booster in place.


Cheers
Dave

I only use these guys for cable & hydraulic conversions. Have been using them for over 12 years.....

Give them a call & talk to them as they know their stuff.

I have also used Modern Drive Line to get parts for my (future) T5 conversion. Very good to deal with.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

We used Mal Wood up in QLD, sent him my clutch pedal, he installed the hydraulic booster on the pedal box and sent it back down, works perfectly!

+1 for modern driveline I have a box of goodies for my manual conversion. I am going to use a concentric slave ( Quartermaster forget p/n). Mal wood sell these locally or just source via summit for half the price. It will fit a T5 but just needs the input bearing retainer to be machined down slightly in a lathe - 5 min job.

Check the pic of my firewall. You can see just under the brake booster it looks like a circle disc you can punch out. It does not look like a clutch master cylinder will fit without hitting the booster?

I have sent an email to Moderns as that is the set up I would like to use.

This how you do a clutch on a RHD car, Modified Falcon pedal box to fit the mustang dash and an XB master cyl and XB booster, this stuff is meant to be RHD. The spacing is correct. You could do a similar thing on your car in real terms, and you get proper dual cct brakes and you can buy new stuff off the shelf at you local brake shop. Falcon pedal boxes are all the same XA-XF

I will be using a JMC ( i think LF performance now?) slave which I got new but s/h of a fellow forum member. It is canted downward ( mount is fabricated at an angle) and should clear a booster better than some others.

Check this post
forums.vintage-mustang...r-cyl.html

Doesnt bother me because I am running non boosted discs ( 13" + 11.65" PBRs) stops OK without excessive leg effort.

I may have to get the LF kit and make an angled plate to push Master cylinder down.

Nice work Shaunp, plenty of room in a 67....to swing a cat...

Mate you do a 66 the same , as a 67, with respect to this, it fitt's in the same deal with a falcon set up. The drag link is different but this pretty much the same.You should have a another look at it is the way to go, gives the car a fatory look when it is all together and can buy the master cylinder at any brake shop. Just to find a falcon at the wreckers with a booster and clutch pedal. XD on are cable, pedal box is the same as though. Just cut then end off the mustang one and weld it to the falcon one so it bolts to the dash.

You can buy cylinders like that no trouble as well, My mate used to get them for his Supa carts, I used one on a E Type jag to convert to manual. Mk1 , Mk 2 and S type jags also use them, so unless the kit is really cheap just go to a large brake shop and ask them, shouldnt be a bit deal. They use them on boat trailers etc to for brakes.
