i noticed the plate in the engine compartment around the master cylinder seems to have detached from the firewall. the clutch pedal wont return to the top of its stroke. i checked the clutch rod and bushing both are still ok. when i press the clutch i can see the plate get pushed even further away from the firewall.
do these reinforcement kits correct the plate detachment in the engine compartment?
can i weld the plate back to the firewall??
someone who had dealt with this before please help!!!!
This used to be a common problem, and Ford made a firewall repair kit for them, BUT-they're now discontinued from FoMoCo. Possibly available from an aftermarket source, or you may have to make something on your own.
