1972 Mach 1 351C-4V-CJ-Q vehicle, 4 speed wide ratio toploader, 3.5:1 limited slip, 2nd owner bought in 1975. Engine upgraded with quench heads, solid lifter Isky cam, TRW forged pistons, polished and shot peened rods, Crane roller rockers, Manley 3/8" pushrods & guides, Offy single plane & Holley 650 DP, Computronix Ignition, Hooker headers. Doing many updates, Sanderson shorty's, Pypes 2.5" stainless, 4:56 gears (solid pinion spacer), SPC upper control arms, new strut rods, springs, GPS brakes and rotors, and next move is towards FiTech fuel injection system.
I installed the one from American Powertrain. The master cylinder push rod angle is terrible and I have spent too much time dialing it in. I am ordering the Malwood pedal tomorrow.

I know it is not a hydraulic solution, but thought I'd post another alternative.

When I converted my FMX to a T-5 manual I used a clutch cable (similar to later version Mustangs):


I used this pedal assembly to add a clutch pedal to my automatic pedal box.

I am very happy with both of these products.

I have the malwood and have been very pleased with results. Angle is spot on.

I have one. Product is qualit. I had issues as I was converting my auto pedal box to a manual pedal box. The Scott Drake bearing kit did not fit right so I had to modify the Drake part.

I ended up trimming some of my pedal box to make sure it cleared the malwood cylinder. Unsure if my pedal support was wonky or just a faulty installer valve

It will be a while. Working on fixing the poor decisions in the 90’s. Stock vs how much I cut out. Now adding back in.

getting the body and electrical working before I assemble the engine and buy the transmission

still trying to decide on blown 357c, NA 408c, Coyote or new Godzilla

I installed one on mine with their TB. I had to shave a little of my factory pedal assy for smooth actuation. Other than that, I have about 1500 miles on the setup and she's solid. Their customer service has called me back on a Sunday for what it's worth.

How is the Malwood working now? The one I got that mounts on the firewall was a PITA to install and very difficult to adjust the linkage. We obviously got something wrong and it failed at about 4,000 miles. We are considering getting the Malwood if it will work with the installed throw out. If not probably do the MDL mechanical which, alas, means pulling the transmission. Argh.

It is an absolute pain in the $ss to install with the pedal box in the car. It was designed to be installed on the workbench from what I can tell. I have swapped from the American powertrain assembly after the second master cylinder failure. It is in the car but I have not driven it yet as I am doing some other mods that have taken more time than I care to think about. But it is a very good quality part.

All of my install issues were the Scott Drake needle bearing pedal kit.

I pulled the pedal box out as I converted mine from an auto pedal box.

I am getting close to adding fluid and bleeding it.

then I will see if I need a pedal stop.
