the 2005 mustang v8 uses a spacer behind the slave

As to break in, its for the clutch cover fingers to go through a few heat cycles bit like rear diffs have to also the friction plate needs to go through cycles too for it to work correct

worth doing though as you can rear tel the difference as the miles goes up, biting point becomes better and more precise, ive found in the past if you want to break a clutch in quick, take it into town with roundabouts and trafffic lights for a week or so for 25 min runs so it heats up and then cools and the cover plate beds to the plate but doesnt get high revs that way, no slip

Ive got to do the same on 2 cars to bed the diffs and a clutch in

450 assorted miles now, got the left leg of a Russian shot putter. Pitbike racing tomorrow so that is 100 miles of not changing gear, so that doesn't count.

The clutch proved it's self, so the most that it will need is re frictioning when the motor comes out.
