Promised to post some pics of Mike Fortes "Push" Hydraulic Slave setup for the TKO after I figured out how to mount it without
replacing the Clutch Fork. I had just pulled the engine and tranny to replace a defective clutch disc and wanted to avoid pulling it again. The Fork supplied with the kit is high quality and well executed, a better way to go if you are considering a hydraulic set-up and haven't installed things as yet.
I used the two cable holes in the stock FORD fork to bolt a fabricated aluminum bracket to capture the Rod End on the cylinder pushrod. Fabricated two 1 inch diameter by 0.6" thick washers to move the cylinder bracket towards the rear of the car. Shortened the threaded section of cylinder pushrod 0.6 inches. Bolted it up!
It fits really well and is super easy to install or remove. I will forward drawings of the adaptors to Mike, maybe he will offer this as an option to those with a TKO tranny who already have a stock Fork in place and don't want to pull the engine or tranny.
I added another 3/4 inch diameter Wilwood "mini" cylinder to the pedal box and used Mike's high quality braided cable to attach to the slave cylinder.
A shout out to Mike Forte for working with me on swapping out and crediting me for parts with absolutely no hassle to get get this done.
Here's the pics:
