Gumby,Just the pedals, $40 is fair.
Found a pedal set from a '93 Mustang 2.3 for $40. Does that price sound fair (I have to pull them myself)? Gotta drive about 1.5 hrs to get them. And, while I'm there, is there anything else off that car that's worthwhile to check on? He's still got the cable, but I told him I won't be needing that (assuming I can find an SN95 cable). I think he's got the bulk of the car still available. Would his trans crossmember help me? Or his driveshaft? If I'm driving that far, I want to make the most of it. Thanks again.
Gumby,My speedo is dead on. You will likely need to change the drive gear located inside the trans tail housing in order to get into a reasonable working ratio for the available driven gears.
You probably mentioned this and I may have missed it, but were you able to get the right combo of speedo gears to have a functional speedometer?
would swapping to the 3.8 Mustang's headers alleviate ... any of the interferences you all talked about. Thanks again as always.
I doubt the later model tubular headers would change anything related to exhaust clearance around the clutch arm, but I have no first hand experience in that regard.
