Just wondering what kind of clutch everyone uses and where their clutch pedal sits in relation to their brake pedal....

I can't tell you what clutch is in mine (probably aftermarket), but its certainly a ton heavier than the stock job. My pedal sits way to high and I have never been able to adjust it lower.
The stock clutch was much nicer to use, and was about level with the brake pedal, had the pressure plate/clutch changed at 62,000k's under warrenty as it was causing hard engagement of 1st gear from standstill.
I'm tempted to go back to stock XR6 as this one's no fun at all.

OH yeah, was checking hypos XG Falcon clutch on the weekend,
so i'll answer for him as he doesn't come into the garage much.

Standard clutch for pano's, about level with brake and much less pressure required than mine.

Pedal box looks much stronger than EF's, he has about 178,000k's on it, stop go driving and pretty sure its the stock plate, 2 cable failures and now the firewall is being torn out.

Jase,

I'm running a stock clutch kit from Ford (I think it's PBR)have also replaced the anchor cable holder and clutch cable. I found that the 140mm pedal to floor spec is too high and i have mine set to about 120-130mm. It feels much better.

So just wondering even with mucking around with the clutch nut it makes no difference to the pedal height?
Have you replaced your cable?

My clutch pedal sits a tiny bit higher than the brake (1cm or less)

I currently have a PBR 1195 heavy duty clutch, which is a lot softer than the centerforce I had in it before hand.

5.0 Xf 5 speed T5 (eb v8 bell & cable)

mines a bit more complicated - I run a EB V8 clutch cable set up on the XF pedals with a Ford motorsport SVO HD clutch on the 5.0.

Pedal sits about an inch higher than brake, and is very light (much lighter than the old 6 cylinder)

Ive been meaning to post about how to lower the height of the clutch pedal without interfering in clutch engagement ability.

Ive resigned myself to the possibility that I can't. anyone??

I hate talking clutches! I have had heaps of problems with the pbr kits for my EFxr8. Have been told by an owner of an eb GT that I should source a gt clutch. I would not have a clue if there is such a clutch but will search soon. A mechanic at work just replaced a clutch in a ef xr6 and said he was not happy at all with the pbr kit. Complaining about a circlip and not a tight enough fit??

As for pedal height - it should all be set level as far as I know.

Cheers
Tim
