anyone install a hyd clutch cable 302/T-5

hi guy's, still trying to figuer out how Im going to put the t-5 manual trans in to my 54 ford pick up. I have a 54 ford pick up with a 86 302 engine and an AOD trans. Ive determined that Its going to be a monumental task but I really want to do this.

From Ford Racing,
t-5 trans
bell housing &block plate
hyd TO bearing kit
10 1/2 disc and pressure plate.
Cpp brake and clutch pedal assy.
clutch master cylinder.
Bucket seats
modified my driveline

Those are probably all my hard parts. I currently have a CPP power brake and master cyl firewall mounted unit which I will have to relocate to make room for the clutch cylinder. CPP told me the new brake and clutch pedal assy will work with some minor modifications. The T-5 from ford is rated for 300 ft lbs of torque and im not into racing so I really shouldn't have any problems there.. If anyone has done something similar I would really like to here from you and any help would be appreciated. Bill

I have used the clutch master cylinder from a jeep Cherokee..and on that TO bearing there is a tool from sppedway to set the TO bearing to the proper throw..
