Default 1965 Mustang 200cc Manual Flywheel Ring Gear

Help! I have a 1965 Mustang with a 200 cc engine and 3 speed manual transmission. I have been looking for a new ring gear for the flywheel. The old ring gear has 132 teeth on it (is that right?). If the car had an original ring gear of 132 teeth, does anyone know where I might find one? If this is not the original ring gear, how many teeth did the original have and where might I find one of those. Also what is the exact size of the starter motor pinion (teeth, clearance, ect.).

I would appreciate any help anyone can give me on this. My mustang has been sitting in the garage because I can't find the proper match between the ring gear and the starter bendix. Thanks!

Hello David,

Welcome to our forums.

I do assume you meant 200 Cubic Inches and not cc?

Wouldn't this be what you are looking for?

Flywheel Ring Gear-A/T | 1966 Ford Mustang 6 Cylinders 3.3L 1BL | AutoZone.com

Some installation required.

I don't know what you should have or what you have now but this gives dimensions. If they match what you have, then this is the part you need. Since its got 132 teeth I can't imagine its not the same part.

Hi David and welcome to the form. Rockauto.com also have the 132 teeth ring and they also carry a 172 teeth heavy duty ring. The link that posted is for the 132 teeth for auto trans (different part #) and the part # for the manual trans is FRG-132S. Both rings look the same but who knows. Carry your old ring and compare .

I saw the automatic mentioned. For the V8s I think they used the same ring gear for both auto and manual. I wouldn't doubt that they did the same for the 6's as well. That was why I said to check the dimensions first.

Um, yeah, the 64-66 6 cyl auto had the ring gear welded to the converter.

Not the torque converter; they were welded to what is commonly called the flexplate although Ford just called it a flywheel. If you need a ring gear for an automatic its less hassle just to buy a new flexplate for less than $40 which has a ring gear already on it. However, the car in question is not an automatic.

289 ring gears were the same for both manual and automatics. The ring was an interference fit for the manual flywheel and was spot welded to the auto flexplate. They were originally 160 teeth but Ford later changed them, and their service replacements to 157 teeth with the same OD and ID. Either one should work but that is for a 289 which also is not the engine in question.

It wouldn't surprise me at at all that the 6s also used the same ring gear for both which was just attached differently. David may well be able to answer that question for us shortly.
