I am putting a T-5 into my Cougar and am using a hydraulic clutch kit from John's Mustang since my car is an automatic.

I was wondering if anyone has done this before. I have hit a snag with mounting the clutch master cylinder since the directions tell me to make a template and center it around the firewall hole for the clutch pedal rod. Problem is, I don't have a hole for the clutch rod. Anyone make this hole in a Mustang? Or do all Mustangs have this hole with a plug on automatics?

Just wondering if anyone has some experience with this, presently at a standstill till Monday when I can talk to someone at Johns Mustangs.

Mustangs have a prepunched knockout that has to be removed. Cougars should be the same.

It may be difficult to see.

Jack, I got an e-mail reply from John at Johns Mustangs (love the weekend support!) saying the same thing. However I can't find any indication of a knock-out on my car. Thanks for the pointer, I should not have any problem resolving this in the next few days with Johns Mustangs.
