87-93 T5 Bellhousing Depth?

Can someone please confirm the exact factory 87-93 5.0L T5 bellhousing depth? I have a 5.0L bellhousing without a single casting mark on it to help me figure out what it fits and have resorted to depth to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have the depth on hand though I know I have the deep later style at home. I tell the early from the late by the hole for the clutch arm. Looking it at from the engine side the early style opening is almost 4 o'clock where the later deeper style is about 5 o'clock. Side by side it's easy to tell. Googling some pictures of each might help.

Hello, This is Bret with Modern Driveline. The 1973-1993 T5 bell is aprox 6.925" deep for use with a T5 trans with a 7.14" input shaft. The 94 and newer 5.0L bell will be about 7.150" with an input shaft 7.88" 94 and newer T5. If the bell has 5.0L cast in the bell it is a 94 and newer bell.

Hope that helps.
