Earl's has a whole line of various fittings for OEM clutch connections, including the early and the later style dry breaks.

What type of user interface are you considering to actuate / control the CC?

Many folks modified the OEM 4th gen part with the "drill mod" in order to increase the flowrate through the MC. Are any other similar modifications needed for the Dorman part?

Iíve used the Dakota Digital Cruise control (The CAN) based one on 2 projects now and it is truly plug and play. You need a throttle by wire set up.

It works great and has an OE looking turn signal stalk.

Carl off memory I think that restrictor was in the stock hydraulic line. Going to the Earls parts with -4 line opens the circuit up.

Some automotive development information. The restrictor is the stock line to help protect the driveline from snap clutch applications. With the restrictor you canít run the engine up to redline and dump the clutch. The restrictor controls the apply rate of the clutch. If you get rid of it your system reacts faster. Downside your driveline loads go up and you break more parts.

Thanks Mark.

BTW, the Wagner replacement MC is made by AP but I too like the aluminum Dorman part (on order....).

Awesome info, great detail.

1) What throw out bearing are you going to be using?

2) For the cruise control, is that only compatible with a factory ECM and not for something like a Dominator?

Iíll use a Centerforce throw out bearing and clutch. I think their throw out bearing is a Ford parts with a bit more stroke. But I could be wrong.

Not sure on the cruse control. Call Dakota Digital. They have a good tech line.
