    I have a steeda double adjustable clutch cable and quadrant installed on it. I can adjust it where the cable attaches to the fork and under the hood where it enters the firewall. Its very possible that I left too much play in it on the clutch fork so I'll try adjusting that. Thank You

You know some mustangs have an adjustment system on the clutch pedal, and might need adjustment, or if you install a rebuilt clutch instead of a new one some times they come unbalance and vibrate if you did just never again trust a rebuilt clutch kit

I installed a complete clutch & Flywheel. I popped outta 1st gear & won't go into any gear whatsoever. Linkage & slave cylinder work! feels like it's going into gear but when i let clutch out nothing


Isolate the problem. Sound like clutch is stuck and not disengaging. Engine off put in gear and rock the vehicle,, with help from a friend press clutch pedal while in gear and have friend push, you will know if the tranny is ok and clutch is stuck. Now check the clutch, slave etc for engagment and disengagment / Clutch linkage- movement/travel may need adjustment or you have something wrong in the reassembly..

I install new flywheel and clutch kit on my car. I can shift a gear when the car is off. If I start a car I can not shift a gear. What is wrong?


The clutch is not releasing properly for some reason.
A number of things can cause this. If, for example, the master cylinder is not bled properly, there will be air in the fluid and as a result, the slave cylinder will not have enough travel.
Another possibility is a bad pilot bearing, which is situated in the end of the crankshaft. It is also not impossible in some cases to install the clutch plate backwards, which will definitely cause problems.

Is there a standard transmission i could put in a 4.6 litre car that now has a automatic transmission in it


The answer is yes, any 5-speed from a 94-04 Mustang (4.6 or 3.8 doesn't matter, it's the same transmission). You'll also need the pedal assembly, shifter assembly, ecu from a 5-speed, 5-speed drive shaft, clutch and clutch cable, and flywheel.
BUT, If u didn't know all that already... let alone the yes or no answer to ur question, I wouldn't advise doing an over

I have a 2006 mustang gt Manuel trasmission just replaced clutch and Slave cylinder my pedal feels good but when in turn on the car it won't let me shift into gear


I am thinking that the clutch plate is in back to front and the plate centre is hitting on the flywheel bolts . If you have an inspection plate under the clutch have some one depress the clutch and see if you can spin the clutch plate ( in neutral naturally). If this is the case then the fix is box out and re-install the plate properly.

1996 mustang gt poping out of gear


Usually when a manual tranny pops out of gear, it's the syncronizers. For sure, get a "Hands On" second opinion on this, but my experiences point in that direction.

Good Luck.

Not totally disengaging, not properly installed, poorly aligned shift fork. What makes you feel its "burned out"? once taken apart the condtion of the clutch will indicate with wear patterns what truly happened. "riding" the clutch would also do so.
