T18 hydraulic clutch conversion?

I have a T18 borg warner tranny with no bellhousing, it had the mechanical clutch in it. It's going in a 92 F150 with a 302, how do i go about converting it to a hydraulic clutch? By the way I had an E4OD in it so i'm sure i'll need a special clutch pedal, anything specific?
Thanks for any information, for how lost I am right now everything will help tons!

The easiest way would probably be to find a similar truck in a junkyard and get the pedal assembly, hydraulics, and bell housing.

Alright, will the mount holes for the slave be on the bell housing or will i have to, (or be able to), tap new ones in the tranny casing?

If it's like the external slave on my '87, it will mount to the bell housing.

It is an external slave...and only a pedal assembly from a gen 9 (92-96) will work for ya.

ok, a friend of mine has an 85' 2WD F250 sitting behind his shed and it has the external hydraulic clutch, I don't know exactly what tranny it is but it's also a 4 speeed manual, any chances the bell housing and clutch would work me? The engine is a 351, I think it's a cleveland, but i'm not positive.

Doubt it's a cleveland...unless a 351 Modified slipped by...it's most likely a Windsor in which case the answer to your questions is simply, yes. You will need a flywheel specific to your truck though.
