300 L-6 flywheel, fit any v-8 engines ?

1989 truck 300 L-6 engine flywheel.

will this fit any ford v-8 engines ?

got one left over today from a clutch replacement on an 89 F250 4x4 we did for a guy.

its the crank bolt pattern where its a small round pattern and two of the bolt holes are slightly closer to each other than the rest are


i dont know a damn thing about ford crank bolt patterns and flywheels i have owned a few and replaced the clutch on a few including my first vehicle ever- a 69 F100 with 240 L-6 and three on the tree, and this was in like 1994/5 when i was just 16/7 haha and i pulled the trans and replaced with with a nicer shape one and also replaced the clutch when it wore down and blew apart on me at an intersection one day haha


but thats it
thanks

It will physically fit onto a sb Ford, but the 240-300 inline six has a different balance than the SB Ford, don't do it.

oh ok

well its 11" clutch

is this plate assembly and disc good for any of the v-8 engines then ?

remember i am no ford person one bit at all even thoguh i have owned many and worked on many i never have learned alot about them really. for the most part i guess hmm..


its in really good shape and too nice by far to toss and is a remanufactured new one only a couple years old i know.

so hmm



thanks

the disc was almost worn down to the line grooves

nothing wrong otherwise.

worked great still

owner wanted a new one since he just bought the truck and wanted to do it now as insurance.

he coulda want a year longer probably im sure,

just wanted to find out if its something i should ave in my enormous auto parts stash

to later sell or use or barter with.

thanks

well i dont care about the disc itself

just the plate assembly and flywheel

the disc is technically at its replacement point anyways, by all means, really. really far from any rivet head, but justbarely down to the grooves between the disc pad sections.


thanks

hahaha maybe or maybe not, hard to day, never know, ive bartered alot of misc things over the years that i could have never imagined that anyone could want or need, but it happens often lol


looks like the flywheel is useless but maybe the plate assembly is good to save for possible v-8 use?

still unsure?

thanks!
