I've read a lot of posts on cable clutch conversions. Why can't you just use the late model cable and adapt it to the old pedals?

The way I understand it: The clutch cable systems pull, while our Z-bars push...

You can just modify the exist pedal. Check out http://users.ev1.net/~gbuzek/clutchinstall.htm for a very detailed description of how to do it. Also he will even sell you the modified 65 pedal if you don't want to modify it yourself (he also gives very good directions about how to modify it for do-it-yourself types).

I'm doing a cable clutch in my 66 and a machinist friend attached a 90 degree piece of iron and part of a late model clutch quadrant to my pedal. I'm going to use a Steeda firewall adjuster on it, too.

Some of the aftermarket cable clutch cables are stronger than the Ford unit - at least that's DB Performance Engineering's selling point.

If I were to use the Ford style I'd go with Fortes clutch cable as it's adjustible from the firewall rather than from the the clutch pivot arm.
