when you say clutch assembly, i'm assuming you mean the master cylinder? i don't think they make a repair kit so the best you could do is get a peice of 14 ga. steel and make up a backing plate on the engine side of the fire wall. does your brake master cylinder move when you push on the brake pedal?

or go to a junk yard and cut the fire wall out of the same truck and theres a perfect patch panel, it will probably run you ten bucks, and be a better fit then an after market patch panel

i know a repair kit is made for them. ford no longer offers it. let me see if i can find the link...

Terrapin Manufacturing


i am sure it could be made to fit, says only to 91 but the cabs are the same, just some stuff under the dash is different and firewall plugs are different.

i read that the trucks had a problem,and ford made a stiffening plate to fix it, but ford had taken care of the problem and reinforced the firewall by 92,so the repair was no longer needed.. all it was is a second steel plate that bolted on to strengthen the wall.. i heard it on line, cant swear ether way..
