1965 t5 conversion

ok guys it's my first time to do this swap and I'm gathering parts for this. I am using the late model bell housing and a 94 302 ho engine. Do I need the separator plate, as well as a 28 oz flywheel imbalance. Can't I just use a flywheel that fits a 94?

The 94 wheel will be a 50 oz imbalance, correct for a 5.0. You will need the matching engine rear cover. The 65 clutch linkage can easily be adapted to the T5 bell.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

Use a 94 flywheel to match your engine. You do NOT want an old 28.8 oz flywheel. You will also need a starter motor from a 94+ mustang.

isn't the 94 bellhousing longer requiring the use of the 94 input shaft ( also longer) or did I remember incorrectly?

My mistake. In somehow missed that he was also using a 5.0. Everything else is valid, however.

yes you need the spacer plate. I'm assuming your trans is also from a 94?

Then you will need a fox bell housing.

You'll need the block pivot if using a z-bar clutch linkage. Otherwise there are some very good cable or hydraulic clutch options.

I have a Mustang Steve hydraulic kit and a re-pop clutch pedal with an OE type 10.5" diaphragm clutch. Works great.
