Default Clutch swap

I recently got a bunch of used clutch parts : a 99 Cobra pressure plate, flywheel, and throw out bearing, and an '03 Mach 1 disc (with 15k miles - we mic'd it, it's good). I read somewhere that my car (2000 Mustang GT) has the 8-bolt crank, like the '99 Cobra (except not forged, I dont think) so the Cobra parts should work. I'm pretty sure though, that my car currently has (if it's stock) a 10.5" clutch in it, and all the new parts are for an 11" clutch...but since I'm changing everything, would that matter?

I guess what I'm asking is, can I use these parts or do I need to order a whole new setup?

You could use that setup.....but why? Spend $189 for a King Cobra clutch from Tommy Vaughn, and dont worry about having to do it again anytime soon. The King Cobra clutch will work with your factor 10.5" flywheel, and it'll come with a new TOB.

BTW-there is 6 bolt flywheels and 8 bolt flywheels.

Do you have longtubes installed?

Because it was free!

No longtubes...yet.

I know there are 6 bolt and 8 bolt cranks. I was thinking 11 in clutch when I typed it

kc = King Cobra? A friend of mine put that in his car and it had a really heavy pedal. That's one of the problems I'm trying to get rid of right now.

Mine isnt all that heavy, but then again, I lightly greased the TOB sleeve and the clutch fork pivot ball also. I think a lot of people forget to do that last one, and end up with more pedal pressure than necessary. Greasing the throwout bearing sleeve isnt as important as the new TOB comes greased, but a little extra wont hurt. Theres also a couple points on the clutch fork where the throwout bearing rides that should get a little dab of grease also.

Mine has over 600miles now, and its just as smooth and no heavier than it was when it first went in.
