Thanks for that Patrick
My flywheel is 160 tooth but i believe i can use the 157 anyway.
Will this clutch work with my T5 and is it stock replacement, the existing clutch is 10", i see this one is 10-1/2
Attached pics of the pressure plate, flywheel and clutch plate which looks like new

I gave you links to basically stock Replacement parts. There are several folks here with T-5's that can probably answer that better than I.

I installed a Centerforce II with my 289 / T-5 combo. It works great & I removed the underdash assist spring. I also rollerized the linkage & pedal support & the pedal effort is comparable to my '06 GT Mustang. It's great to shift Dean

Is that a 10 or 10-1/2" clutch and what flywheel is in your car ?

157T and 160T flywheels are the same diameter and are interchangeable. The 164T flywheel is larger in diameter and is NOT interchangeable.

When you decide which flywheel you want to buy you need to ask the seller if it is drilled for both 10" and 10.5" pressure plates or if it is drilled for only one or the other. Many flywheels are drilled for both 10" and 10.5" and for the metric clutch used on later Mustangs.

I'm looking at this one, what do you think ? It's drilled for 10 and 10#1/2.

You didn't ask me and it may not be important to you, but I'm not sure the ProComp flywheels are SFI approved. They may be and I'm just not aware of it. The Speedway flywheel I posted is SFI approved, is drilled for both clutches, and offers all three balance options via removable weights.

Regards,
Patrick

I was reading some posts on another website today and someone mentioned that the 10" and 10.5" clutches both have the same bolt pattern so apparently there are only 3 clutch bolt patterns- 10/10.5", 11" (only on a 164T flywheel) and the late model metric clutch. Since the flywheel in your link obviously has more holes than needed for a single bolt pattern I would say that it is drilled for the 10/10.5" clutch and the metric clutch.

I've ordered the flywheel and yes it does fit a 10 and 10-1/2.
The Z bar has little rollers inside, should i replace them or just pack it with grease ?

If the Z-bar is out I would recommend adding a grease zerk for easy maintenance down the road. I ordered one from NPD recently that stated "these are now being shipped with grease fittings" or something to that effect. The one I received did not. So I added one myself.
