Hi all I need some tech help, I am going to put a 1987 302 engine & a T-10 4 spd in my 65 Fastback. Being the engine is from a 1987 & the trans is from 65/66 will there be any driveline balance issues? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Mike.

As long as you use a late model flywheel there souldn't be any problem with balance.
The 50 oz versus the 28 oz only deals with engine components. Transmissions didn't enter into the equations.

You will have to use any early bellhousing.

A later model block has no provision for the clutch linkage pivot (driver's side on the bellhousing flange). I seem to recall seeing a 'retrofit' bracket to run the early 'pivot' style linkage (as opposed to cable/slave cylinder), think it was offered through Glidden Racing, but don't quote me. Try calling MustangsPlus (or click on the link at the top of this page). They, if anyone, can steer you in the right direction. They do a bunch of business for the 'restomod' guys and I'm sure they've run across this combo before. Ask them about flywheel/balancer combinations for a late block/early trans combo, there could in fact be issues to adress with that.

The clutch linkage bracket is available form Windsor Fox, I believe it's about $60.

For balance I used a Ram Automotive steel billet flywheel (50 oz-in) and an NPD conversion harmonic balancer (three bolt style - 50 oz-in).

One more- I just put an 87 5.0 in my 64 1/2 conv. I used the Motorsport flywheel that is drilled for all chutch possibilities (50 oz) and got the clutch z-bar bracket from California Pony Cars. 888-CAL PONY. Just tell Cindy what you're doing! I also out in the Ford toploader overdrive that Ford used in the late 70's. I have a 2.80 rear and with the ,60:1, it's too low. Like 2700RPM @ 90 MPH. I'm looking for a 3.25 so the final will be about 2.25 or 3000 RPM @ 90. The 4V w/ tri-y's (from Cal Pony) gets around 20-22 MPG on the highway.
