Default flexplate and flywheel ?

What flexplate and flywheel do I need to bolt a roller 351W to a T5?

Can I reuse any of my 302 stuff? I know I cant use the flywheel due to the balance diff.

Yeah I knew that but I was wondering what vehicles with a 351W can I get thre flywheel from? Id imagine it would have to come from a stick shift truck as Im bolted a T5 to it.

Flexplate is for an automatic and a flywheel for a manual. This is what I run:

I thought I needed a 157 tooth flywheel not a 164 tooth

You will not find a 157 tooth flywheel on any truck to fit your car. They were all 164 I believe and could run an 11" clutch. The one production car that comes to mind with a manual tranny and a 351W is the 95 Cobra R that was white and there were only 300 produced. That car had a 157 Tooth flywheel.

Ford Racing has a Billet 157 tooth Flywheel that has the bolt on weights 50 or 28 oz.

I have used it, nice piece. BTW I have called quite a few times just to help you out. I have had no luck reaching anyone.

So I can run a 157 tooth flywheel? I got your message. Ive been in the garage pulling the old tired 306 out and getting ready for the next one. I will give you a call tomorrow if you are around. Again I appreciate the help. Not alot of help on here unless you are running the same ol 347 every tom dick and harry is running these days.

Yes you can run a 157 tooth flywheel. Also since it sounds like you didn't know the difference between flywheel and flexplate be sure to get the right bolts that bolt it to the crank. Flywheel to crank bolts are longer than flexplate to crank bolts....
