Clutch Cable kit 1964.5-66 Mustang


  “This is a Complete kit.
…….Not all Kits are created equal.
……….There are no extras to buy to install this upgrade”.

A Modern Driveline clutch cable kit will convert your old mechanical linkage and provide you with a modern cable clutch.
This kit will fit any T5, T45, TR3650, T56
Tremec transmission when installed in your classic.

Any of these late-model transmissions can be swapped into your Mustang if you use a cable-compatible bellhousing or scatter shield.
This kit includes a heavy-duty lined clutch cable, providing you with a smoother clutch pedal.
In this kit, you will have the ability to finely tune the clutch cable with ease.
The stock clutch pedal is reused with an adjustable bracket.
Modern Driveline even designed the system to be compatible with both manual and most power brake boosters. (see Note below)
The clutch cable is not ‘just some fox body cable’, but one specifically designed for the early Mustang to fit ahead of the exhaust that then follows the oil pan flange.
The cable housing is kept in place with mounting hardware using one of the oil pan bolts.
The cable is connected to the cable fork with a fully adjustable rod end.

Using the stock clutch pedal, a bolt-on adjustable pedal bracket provides the pulling action without welding.
The firewall plate mounts behind the brake master or factory brake booster. and is equipped with an easy-to-access adjustment that requires no tools.

NOTE: This kit does not work with any bellhousing that does not have a cable mounting provision
and must be at least 7″ deep.

  • This kit works with Pull style clutch forks only
  • It will not work with a push-style clutch fork




Please Note:

The cable cannot be pulled out of its natural path to clear exhaust, and may not work with long-tube or Tri-Y headers.

This Modern Driveline Cable Clutch Conversion Kit is designed to work on manual brakes and for power brakes that are using the original style booster.
This Modern Driveline Kit may not work with aftermarket boosters as they might interfere with the mounts that come through the firewall.
This kit works with OE Bendix 8″ booster. It will not work with Midland brake booster (band clamp) and certain aftermarket 8″ and larger brake boosters.

This clutch cable conversion kit makes installing a late-model Mustang 5-speed or 6-speed transmission into your classic 1965-1966 Mustang a whole lot easier!
“Give your Mustang a much smoother alternative to your stock mechanical linkage with this heavy-duty lined cable.

“I already have a T5 in my car, how hard is this to install, and how does the cable attach to the release lever?”


This is not that difficult to install with basic tools, this attaches to the lever by a threaded stud that is part of the cable. Instructions for this can be found under the ‘instructions tab’ on this page.


“My ’66 has a Tremec  5-speed.  I have the original ’66 bell and the T5 bell. Will this work?”


You should be OK with the 5-speed bell,  It works with any cable compatible bellhousing. It will not work with the original manual bell from “66.
