to make it short, someone cut me off and i slammed on the clutch ( to keep car from stalling ) and the brake. then after that my car wouldnt go into gear. after i fially get the car into gear, she wont shift out the gears and its very hard as if it has a load on it. and then when im at a stop light i leave the tranny in 2nd and have the clutch in, and it will stall if i dont continue giving it gas. the car wont go out of gear while its running, but i can shift it when its not running. so im assuming its the clutch. what im actually thinking is when i slammed the cltuch i messed up my quadrant. i got a HD king cobra in now, but i never got the billet quad in. so im thinking its the quad, right? get back to me asap please.

any and all suggstions are much appericated and wanted:grinangel
thanks to all :thumbsup:

i just went to ford motorsports and they ordered a quadrant kit for me, its the one that they sell. its the quadrant and the cable. thats the same thing as the steeda and upr right? it says " v-8 mustang adjustable clutch linkage kit". for people that have the ford parts cataloge its on page 119. and this one is made of billet or metal as well right?
thanks anthony:thumbsup:

i got it install and it came off in two pieces, is this normal? and i got it in, but i cant get the cable adjusted correctly...:mad: . the car starts up fine but when u go to put it in gear, the car jumps, grinds and stalls out. i cant get this damn cable adjusted. its either too much pedal slack, or not engouh. and i think im just messing up the tranny ( wit it griding and all ) tryin to adjust it... any suggustions, ideas? oh and btw the cable seemed to be jammed.:thumbsup: ,
thanks to all:D

p.s.- the quad doesnt use the stock springs correct> and i use them to make up for the space between the quad and the hairpin clips ( the litttle clips to hold on the quad )

thanks again,

really stupid question, but the line didn't snap did it?

Do you still have the stock cable?? If so, I would have tried to adjust it before replacing the cable. I do this by liftin on the clutch pedal a tad, and push it to the floor, and then let it come back quickly. Do that a few times, and you'll feel the clutch pedal grab at a different point. And one more thing... try taking out your floor mat. It'll allow the clutch pedal to go completely to the floor........ (problem on my old 5.0)
