ZF5 Install

I just came back from picking up a ZF5 tranny (Craigslist buy) that I will be installing in my 1960 F100 4x4. Can anyone give me some direction on where to buy a hydralic clutch set up? I'll need a pedal, master cylinder, pretty much the works. I'll be putting the tranny behind a 300 six.

What about using the pedal and master cylinder you already have (assuming your is a stick since it's a 4x4). You would have to make up a hose, might be tricky but not impossible

Unfortunately, they were removed before I purchased the truck. Truck has been stripped of most mechanicals.

I have an extra set of pedals. pm me if you think you can use them.
I bet you could make an adapter bracket to use the master cylinder from the transmission donor year, then a hose would be compatible to the slave.
FWIW 91 and earlier ZF uses a speed cable. 92 and later doesn't.
I had a ZF behind a 300 and loved it. With 31 inch tall tires the 4.10 gears were just right. My 300 was warmed up a little. Had a comp 260 cam (looses some low end, not much torque below 1600-1800rpm) An Offy C intake with 390 Holley and efi twin exhaust. All pretty good but don't do an aftermarket intake without building a heater on the bottom. I never got better than 13-14 mpg.

Thanks Willowbilly3 but I was looking more at a new hydraulic complete kit rather than try and piece something together. I know it's the easy way out but rather just pick up a complete set, install and move on. I think I may have found something from Hotrodhydraulic.com but will see.
