I'm going to echo what 454 said-I had a Mustang 4 speed that did that as soon as I put in a performance clutch. I pulled down the linkage,welded and gusseted the pivot arm,beefed up the rods . The problem disappeared.
Check the nylon bushings on both ends of pivot arm-they add a lot of play when they're gone also.

Good Luck,George
