You will need to look for a 87-88 Tbird with 5 speed manual. Look for the Turbo Coupes as they will nore likely have a manual then the standard Tbird. This Tbird is still a Fox chassis so the hydralic clutch setup should fit a Mustang. This will give you the pedal addembly. Or yor can look for a 89-9? Tbird The supercharged model. The V6 in these cars has the same bell housing bolt pattern as a 302 and they used the T5 transmission with a hydro clutch. I remember reading a magazine article about someone doing it.

I have two FOX cars with T5`s and the cable operated clutches, both work fine. If you clutch pedal is stiff, the cable is likely frayed inside. I`d try a new clutch cable before going thru the hassle of trying to make a hydraulic setup work.

I would say you cable is junk as well. Disconnect the trans side and operate the clutch pedal. if its still stiff get a new cable. A hyd set up is nice but, $$..
