Ordered flywheel from Summit, all the right numbers but when I got it, the pressure plate bolts didn't match the tapped holes. The pressure plate uses 6 bolts. Talked to Summit cust. serv. and they couldn't find a match. I looked at Jegs and the application chart showed the 351w replacement starting at 1970. Don't want to send back another wrong part. Paid $30 in shipping so far.
Yes, the only problem seems to be the pressure plate bolt locations. The Summit flywheel had The right bolt circle diameter but the spacing for the bolts on each yoke was about 1/4 inch off. I can provide pressure plate mounting measurements when I get home in about a week and a half. (writing this on the road hence the long time to reply). I will get back to you to see if you might have the right part.
Doing a clutch job on my '69 Mach1 with 351w and 4 speed. Present one is original and has been resurfaced already and has heat cracks. Can't afford $300 part at this time. Any good sources?
Still haven't found a flywheel to match my new '69 mach1 351w pressure plate. The ford number is C5AE6380-E. It has 164 teeth ring gear, 11" clutch,26 oz. balance factor. Summit or Jegs have nothing to match the pressure plate. (3 7/16 o.c. bolts)
