I have a flywheel that has 168 teeth, part number C5AE-6380-E. The car its going in is a 1970 mustang, 351C 4V, toploader 4 spd RUG AV1. The bell housing D1TA-6394-AA is for a 164 tooth flywheel. Before spending the money having the machining done I'd like to make sure it will work. Will it work in my car? If you only know the application for the flywheel that may help. Thank you

168 tooth? That isnt a small block flywheel... small blocks are 157 or 164. Sounds like you got a Chevy or someone miscounted/mislabeled the teeth.

Assuming you have ae 164 tooth, that bellhousing whould work. It's the same one I am using for my 1970 4 speed swap.

I think Jim's right. If the ring gear is on the flywheel it's probably not the wrong one but just miscounted. Easy to do.
The D1TA bell will work just fine with it.
D1TA cast iron bells were used behind all 1971 thru 73 Mustang small blocks, including Boss 351.

It's not a miss count. You can put a 164 tooth flywheel up against the one on the flywheel and see the difference. And when counting I marked every 10 teeth.

Does that flywheel have a cast in counterweight? If not it may be a truck 6 cylinder flywheel.
I think there were some of those marked C5AE and they may have had a different tooth count, not sure. If it has no counter weight, it won't work for you.
