I have a buyer for my Mangusta. He has a weak clutch leg due to an earlier accident and needs the lightest clutch available. Has anyone installed the centerforce setup? Is there a big difference in pedal pressure from stock?

I do not know about the Ford motor setup with the ZF & Centerforce, but I have a 1971 Hemi Cuda convertible with a 426 Hemi that had a McCleod clutch setup. Might as well stand on the clutch it was so tough to push in. The Centerforce is a LOT easier to push in -- I would say it is not as easy as pushing in the clutch on a Ford Escort, but it is not too much harder than that.

I cannot say anything bad about the Centerforce setup -- it is definitely the best option out there for ease of engaging the clutch and hold power. Hope this helps.
I guess that the stock pressure plate was rated really low in spring pressure. The strange thing is that the centerforce diaphragm installed in a Pantera makes for a very light pedal but not so much as in the goose. Maybe Dana is correct in saying that the problem lies in the pedal linkage/hydraulic design. You could always try going back to a stock pressure plate but if you intend on increasing HP, it may not be enough to hold. I modified my Pantera Mcleod Long style pressure plate by removing 3 springs which lightened up the pedal pressure without any slippage but I would assume that the Mcleod spring pressure is rated well above that of a stock goose pressure plate
