I'm just needing a place to bounce some ideas about an internal slave cylinder for the t5's. Looking at Modern Drivelines setup, it looks like this could be done on a grassroots level for alot less money.
Using a 2005-up v-6 Mustang internal slave cylinder

It's listed for 100 bux.
I'm just wondering what else needs to used.
I found this good write-up about installing the M/D setup in a 69

Judging by this, it's just as simple as measuring and installing a spacer. I'm just wondering if I'm missing something.

Input shaft diameters, bore, and stroke are the few things that will determine if you can use it. The aftermarket cylinders typically have threaded collars to adjust the clearance between the throwout bearing and the fingers of the pressure plate. If yours isn't close, then you'll have to fabricate some kind of spacer. Then you will have to determine what the stroke of the bearing is, to ensure that the clutch properly engages and disengages, without traveling too far. Finally, you'll have to determine the bore of the cylinder in order to properly match it to a master cylinder/pedal setup.

Also, I'm not aware of any manual trans in the V6 line of mustangs. Keep in mind this is likely designed to fit with the T56/TR6060 series of transmissions, so compare the input shaft diameter between them and the T5 to start with.

2005-10 4.0 Mustangs still got T5's.
I thought about doing something with a '90's V6 Camaro internal slave. But to start with the input shaft diameter is different. And I suspect more stuff to be different. I haven't given up on it, I just decided to wait until I ran across something to put my hands on and check out. I doubt I will run into an '05+Mustang setup, but if I do I will be all over it. $100 for a slave isn't too big a deal. Paying that much only to find it useless for some reason would suck. I at least would like to measure and compare some parts first. Older Mustang T5 parts I have at the ready.
