I've seen several folks who've done cable clutch conversions for
their 64.5-66's. Has anyone done one for a '68? The methods used
for the 64.5-66 do not work for the '68 due to the lack of any
clearance above the pedal hanger bracket. I've got a new
TKO hung in my '68 and only now am I learning that none of the
methods I had planned to use for the clutch pedal will work.

I'm not too keen on shelling out $250+ for a commercial version.
I'd rather see if I can't come up with my own version, but I'm not
above stealing ideas from those who have gone before.

Take a look at my website page on cable clutches... while mine would be too high, the quadrant style of Mustang Steve's might be what you're looking for.

I've run into a similar situation with my '68. I just got the engine fired up today, and now I have started my quest for a cable clutch setup to shift my TKO. I should have something devised by the end of the weekend. I will pm you when I formulate a plan.

I have seen a setup that utilizes the stock clutch linkage hole. It basically has a fixed braket to hold the cable end and a bracket that pushes the cable sheath forward when the clutch is depressed. Perhaps someone knows the supplier. From the pictures, there was no reason this could not be copied.
