I am planning on installing a T-5 in my 1966 coupe w/ a 302. What size fly wheel will I need for this? Any body have any other advice before I tear into it?

If its a 302, just look in any 87-93 Mustang magazine or parts supplier (www.mustangsunlimited.com , www.e-mustang.com)
It should be a stock piece
have a good one

Make sure it's for the correct crank imbalance. Pre '82 were 28 oz and '82 and after are 50 oz.

Like Steve said, it will depend on which 302 you have. Either way you will need the 157 tooth. I've done three T-5 conversions and used the vintage bellhousings and spacer plates with original clutch linkage on all three with good results. You'll love the overdirve. I would suggest at least 3.50 rear gears, any thing less and you put a strain on a Carbed motor in overdrive.
