hey i recently converted my el xr6 to a manual it has a manual pedal box in it brand new clutch cablle and a new clutch kit but my clutch pedal sits really high and the clutc cable is adjusted all the way out if its adjusted any lower there is hardly any free play and is difficult to get gears. is this normal for it to sit so high? does anyone else have this problem?

It sits a tad higher than the brake pedal.
In the ford manual it says to have it 140mm from the floor.
Mine is sit at 140mm and works good.

Hi, I know this is an old thread but you might be able to help me, I have the same problem
Do you measure it to the firewall or straight down?
Also where did you get the clutch pedal spring from, mines missing

To the fire wall. Basically, you are measuring how far the pedal is travelling to fully disengage the clutch. That's why you measure to the firewall not the floor.
