I will be looking for an hydraulic set up myself soon when I test fit the T5, so interested in this thread as well.

I will be using a bracket similar to this one to mount the slave cylinder.



Have you considered these?

Just be sure you don't use a return spring if you use a hydrostatic cylinder, or it won't self adjust, as the clutch wears. You still have to set the base adjustment though.


How do you tell if you have a hydrostatic or a non-hydrostatic clutch slave cylinder?

Still like the idea of replacing or repairing the slave without removing the gearbox, definitely not going to be a race car Laughing

Scott,
Buy the quartermaster direct from Summit heaps cheaper that is what I did after found right p/n. I did a fair amount of research and found negative feedback on some of the ram and mclead HTB. Pretty much all feedback on quartermater was positive.

When I get back from work can check a part number. But you do need to machine the input bearig retainr for the quartermaster to fit.

Here is an other example, this is what I have done with my 66. I too got the idea from the overpriced RRS option and thought there must be another way. Turned out costing a bit more than I thought, not as much as the RRS one, but it is a pretty solid part and fits my needs (or should I say my wants) and I am happy with the end result. Fits well underdash and I have a flat surface on this part of the firewall, reinforced on the inside.

I got the start of the pedal box from a Company in the US, it came as a generic fit. (I can't find the details at the moment but will try to track them down) it cost around $600 landed. The basic frame only needed shortening to fit between firewall and the dash, on the dash side we made a bracket that fits the same as the stock pedal box.

It needed to have a bracket fabricated to suit the clutch booster. The 3/4" clutch master and booster is off a GT-R from a jap wreckers, it's was no more than $150, and is very similar to the Nissan Patrol ones, however it is rebuildable and did not cost 5-800 bucks most places want for the patrol ones.

The pedal arms were shortened to sit at the right height. Finished it off with an 8" dual diaphragm booster and a wildwood dual remote master for the brakes. It easily clears the stock steering colum, however as with most custom mods it is a trade off, I have to fit a remote wiper motor and cable drive. But hey that's another project. Also the left hand plenum fresh air inlet is slightly in the way, that's already been removed and I will fit an electronic gate as part of the A/C and air system.

Unfortunately I don't have skills to do the fabrication work myself but had a small hot rod shop in Perth do the work for me. All up it probably cost me around $1500. Having done it once there are areas that a bit of cash could have been saved, especially it you were able to do the fabrication yourself.

On my 69 Capri (which I converted to a 289 Windsor and 5 speed) - I used the standard falcon clutch master cylinder and machined the reservoir off (as there was not enough space) and machine up a remote reservoir and tapped the master cylinder for the piping to the custom remote one that I machined up. I also used the mill to create an angled place and welded in reinforcing in the firewall. The Cougar uses the same clutch master cylinder with the angle pressed into the plate that was welded into the firewall and it was reinforced. The mustang I am playing with the idea of using a cable clutch set up.

Think the iPhone trumped me on this. Anyway, per the last quote from Boofhead, I'm watching this with interest as am beginning to source parts to switch from C4 to T5. Note Boofhead considering a cable clutch setup, as would be my preference from the perspective of it being less rooting around. But I'd welcome any advice as to the pros and cons of cable vs hydraulic.
