    A hydraulic clutch. Using a second brake master beside your regular master with longer bolts. And make a little bracket to hold a Chrysler slave to the Stude bell housing.
    As usual, Alan is correct on the second brake master cylinder. I take it further and use a hydraulic throwout bearing.

      2X with Allen and Jack. Used a hydraulic setup on my 74 Avanti T56 and it works great. I used the complete Chevy master/slave setup to a modified clutch petal but that would be tough to do in your case but I would chose the TO bearing option for yours.

        Ok, guys, I thought I would try modifying the original clutch linkage and see how well it works. If I'm not satisfied, the hydraulic system will be the next try. Using some 1/8" scrap that was pop riveted to the floor by a prier owner, I cut out a plate and welded in the ball joint from the original linkage. Here is the album.

        Now I have to come up with a speedometer cable that will work. The original Stude has the push in gear housing, while the T5 has the screw on style. Is there a stock one that will work or just have one made up with the correct speedo head fitting and trans fitting?

          Ok, just ordered a custom made speedo cable with the correct female ends to work on the speedo and the trans. 60"
