pretty pricey!
clutch brand new shouldn't exceed $300
You'll need:
Flywheel
Shifter
Spigot bearing
Clutch pedal
Clutch cable
Clutch fork
Thrust Bearing
Pedal box or pedal box malwood pin.
Wiring knowledge

try the site sponsor FTG auto, and they ship.

post a wanted ad.

Theres one for sale in QLD:
ford-parts-for-sale-f17/fs-t5-manual-conversion-kit-suit-ea-el-i6-350-t97456.html


Spigot bearing goes into the Crank. without it, your gearbox will not last.

last I bought one, was about 2 years ago from ford and cost me $28

You can get a spigot bearing from Bursons. They sell them for about $20...make sure you buy the right one that's all. They may give you a choice of a smaller one or a bigger one which has a lip on it. I prefer the one with the lip.

Anyways if you look hard enough or have some patience, you can get a full conversion kit for around $600 or so.

I waited until such kit came up from searching the For Sale forums in both FM and AFF. End up getting one out of an EF for $550, including ECU. Sold the ECU and the auto box and made a profit :D.

You will also need a Clevis Pin (Links the clutch cable to the clutch pedal) less than $10

And the rubber dampener (Links the clutch cable to the clutch fork) approx $45

Cheers
