Yep. Centerforce makes a replacement clutch the guys in the DeTomaso foum seem to like, and it’s $530.

It is if you want full power. Otherwise buy the cheap gas.

Shouldn’t have to replace the trans, just the pressure plate & clutch once it’s all apart.

Replacing the clutch is not a big deal, just a lot of work to separate the transaxle from the engine and remove the flywheel/pressure plate. I assume a replacement pp/clutch is not too hard to source? I helped a friend replace the clutch on his ‘72 Pantera many moons ago when he sold it.

I don’t think the fix is a huge deal. A friend had a ‘72 Pantera many years ago, and I helped him replace the clutch for its new owner.

Much like the Camaro, the backseat of a Mustang is great for small children and double amputees. I had an ‘06, and have spent enough time in the S550; they haven’t improved much. Unless of course the driver is short and moves the seat way up. I consider it a 3 passenger car.

Twenty years or so ago I had a beautiful ‘69 Stingray roadster. This is exactly the kind of car I’d look for as a project I can drive from day one. (which would prob involve a 4 or 5 speed swap) NP all de live long day.

My first TDI cured me of the run the tank to empty habit. Fortunately it was one of the rotary pump engines (1998), and I was able to get it started after a LOT of cranking after adding fuel. I never pushed it with the two subsequent common-rail TDIs though.

Thanks for that; I had no idea the engines were so similar. Gotta file this nugget away to the turbo’d project knowledge base.
