Re: [FORD XB] Auto - Man Conversion
The clutch pedal will fit on a new shaft, still available through ford spares, that is if you are going to run a hydraulic clutch. Its just a matter of removing the clips, taking out the shaft, and auto brake pedal, and swapping them. If you are going to run the cable operated clutch, you will need to replace the complete pedal box, as the pedal pivots from a different position. I would suggest to brace the shaft also, if you are going to run cable, with a good clutch, as the pivot is just welded to the pressed steel frame of the pedal box, and can break. This is also a good thing to do on later E series Falcs for you guys reading this. The rest of the conversion is dead set easy if using the single rail, top loader boxes. I guess if you use another non Ford box, it will depend on the quality of the conversion, and all the bits being there. One thing to remember though, the spacer between the bellhousing and starter, otherwise it wil sound like you have a gear drive, untill the first big rev, and the gear on the starter will go kaboom. If you are considering this conversion, pm me, and I will give you my number, an go through all the finer details with you.
