the only differens in the 5spd hydraulic clutch setup versus 3-4spd
is the slave cylinder.... use a use a pull style slave , then fabricate a mounting bracket to attach slave to trans cross member...

this is how I got it mounted in my Galaxie....

The easiest is to use a hydraulic throw out bearing. It eliminates the slave and can be used on a 3 or 4 speed. Look at the Summit Racing website. You'll still need a clutch master cylinder somehow adapted to your pedal.

yes that too... and very expensive.... also biggest problem....
if any issues arise with that setup... transmission has to come out again...

heard some people have had some problem with theme....
that's why I stayed away from hyd throw out bearing....
I can replace my pull slave in 5 minute's if need to....

Is there a kit or where did you get you setup
I pieced it together my self
Toyota Tacoma clutch master cylinder
aftermarket willwood style pull slave
fabricated cluch pedal lever/pushrod...
hard line/brake line...

it was a real pain I the arse to get right... but well worth it....:D

here's some reading to pertaining to early mustang T5 conversion but should be the same for fairlane
the slave part is what will be different for your application....
