5.0 flywheel and clutch swap

Postby Wildcomet » Sun Feb 25, 2018 6:27 pm

I'm in the process of switching my 1964 Comet from a C4 trans to a T10 4 speed. The car has a 1989 5.0 roller motor in it and I will be using all factory manual clutch linkage in the swap. My question, using a 50 ounce unbalance flywheel will any clutch/pressure plate and throwoutbearing combination bolt up to this flywheel, does it have the same bolt pattern as the early 289 flywheel, or do I have to use all later model(5.0) parts. If I use all 5.0 parts will they work with my T10 and factory clutch linkage set up? What do you folks recommend?

Is it an OEM ‘Stang flywheel? I know the Ford Racing parts all have dual bolt patterns for the pressure plate. I can’t remember if the stock parts did. I *think* you can use an earlier 10” SAE clutch or later 10.5 metric. Long style (3-finger) or diaphragm-type shouldn’t matter.

If you’re doing a swap & have the flywheel off the car, take it up to the parts store and try ‘em!
'cause Johno says you gotta have a sig pic! :)

Do not forget that the late 5.0 liter block does not have provision for the "Z" bar pivot ball .

You can get a bolt on pivot.
