Thanks guys! Well Ive decided to get an XTD stage 3 clutch. Ive seen good reviews about them and its one of the only clutches Ive seen for under $200 thats good and is 26 spline. However it is only a 10.5" clutch. It wont matter too much since Im going to replace it with something much better when I get my motor in. This is a "practice" clutch. So I can learn how to drive stick. If anyone has a stock 6 bolt 10.5" flywheel that is still good they are willing to get rid of for cheap please let me know! This is only temporary until My other engine goes in this summer.

I got the remaining peices today. The pedal assembly is rusty. So I took it apart and I am cleaning it all up.

The pedal assembly has been taken apart, cleaned up and the painted black. Looks ALOT better. Even though you wont see it. Atleast I phave the peice of mind that its not all rusty up in there. Also, I talked to the guy at "Mustang Heaven" were I got the foot pedal assembly, and He said hed be willing to do a interior trade plus a little cash his way so I can go to black interior instead of the tan I currently have!

The automatic parts removing started today! I got the foot assembly removed and I have the shifter unbolted. I plan on going back out in a little bit and get the midpipe removed and hopefully the starter tonight. I heard getting the third bolt out is a b!tch. Not looking foward to that.

if youre talking about the Tranzilla's that Rockland Standard Gear does they cost $9600...

i was looking into one for my FFR '33 since the 2.29 1st would help it hook a lot better but NOT for that much money...

i was pissed too, MPS had 3 of the Ford Racing FR500C T56's that use those same ratio's for sale a few months back for $3500... only problem is they were for mod motors and my '33 is getting a HCI 302... FML right?

also related to the clutch question, i'd stay with a 10.5" clutch itll be a little bit less rotating mass vs an 11", the motor should rev a little quicker too

I really wanted that one, but obviously could not afford it. I got the t56 magnum kit through D&D performance.
