A new hydraulic clutch system for Fox-body Ford Mustangs is designed to replace the factory cable-actuated linkage with a simple bolt-in system that fits under the dashboard.
The manufacturer of the Hydramax system, American Powertrain, says the hydraulic conversion also can be used to convert an automatic-transmission 1979-1993 Mustang to manual. The kit includes all the components for installation, the company says.
“The included clutch pedal allows for an easy conversion of a cable-clutch-equipped car to hydraulic, or an automatic car to manual,” according to an American Powertrain news release. “The kit is easy to use and requires no complicated adjustments — everything can be bolted-in, then simply bleed the slave cylinder.
“The new Hydramax kit includes a master cylinder, clutch pedal, lines and a billet Hydramax hydraulic slave-cylinder bearing. The conical slave cylinder is pre-bled, dual sealed and comes with shims to adjust the distance to the clutch fingers for any type of clutch set-up. Included is a billet reservoir to finish out the install.”
American Powertrain stocks similar hydraulic conversion kits and components for other American cars and trucks, including other generations of Mustang.
