Seems that Ford have no stock of V8 clutch cables. Are there any aftermarket options? EB-AU V8 clutch cables are all the same.

I tried several local auto parts places and got nothing. In the end, I went to Flexidrive to get a new one made. Have you got any companies over there that make speedo & clutch cables?

Yes quite a few but they all seem to have the idea that they can charge whatever they want.

I will call flexidrive later today and see what their export price is. I believe their p/n is CC219.

Any other leads / suggestions welcome

As a guide, I paid $130 for the new cable and they reused the metal end that fits into the bellhousing.

Flexdrive Agencies is probably your best option.
Are the V8 cables shorter than the I6's ??

Might be an option to get one shortened.

Longterm option might be hydraulic, if you can do some welding/fabrication.
Cheapest option I've found is a toyota dyna master/mazda E1800 slave.

The BA master cyl setup is heaps expensive.
