I am buying a TKO setup and a McLeod scattershield. I was at FFW Norwalk and a vendor told me I need a 1" longer clutch fork for use with a McLeod or Lakewood bell. Is this true? The one that they were selling looked like they just cut and welded a stock one to make it longer. I will just do that myself if that's all it is. I was planning on running a stock fork.

I was told that too. I'm running the stock 93 clutch fork w/ McCleod bellhousing.

The '94-'95 clutchfork/arm deal is 1" longer, costs like $35 at the Ford dealer.

I am having some clutch adjustment issues, and I think the extra 1" of travel would help.

I've got the mcleod bellhousing and the extended fork and it works great. The longer fork makes everything line up better so you dont pull the clutch fork at the wrong angle.

It is suggested to run the Extended fork with the Mcleod or Lakewood Bell. The diameter of the Bell is larger and therefore the cable geometry suffers. The extended fork is designed to straighten out the geometry.

I guess I will just cut and weld my stock one 1" longer. Easy fix.

I also have a tremec 3550 with the McLeod Scattershield. You guys suggest getting a clutch fork for a 94-95 Mustang? I am currently running the stock fork and was unaware that a longer one should be used. Just want to make sure the '95 one will work before I go and get it.
