That particular swap has been done for many years now..did one about 35 years ago and as I remember if my memory does not fail me we used the flywheel and pressure plate from a chev and a Ford clutch disk..as far as i can remember the clutch disk was sourced at the local parts store by just looking through the pile and finding one that was the correct diameter and that fit..Seemed to work OK until we blew the trans several times. Grrrrr.. much better to go with the open drive line and it so happens the Ford ranger rear springs and all will go in just fine..A 302 with a C-4 goes in with only a small relief in the trans tunnel area and makes a nice cruiser..

48 ford transmission..........FORGET IT,first time you put the go pedal to the metal,you will be trying to find another trans,if youre going to go with a SBC Chevy,go with either a 350,400 or 700R4 trans (all are automatic) keep in mind that the X member that holds the trans mount,will have to be modified,OR,you will not be able to pull the trans without pulling the engine,cause the chevy trans,will fit partially into that X member..I have a 48 Ford coupe,and i had to modify mine...good luck...

Haha that's half the fun! Idk it's my dads idea I'm going with bought the parts to do the conversion and hopefully have it done before Christmas w/out him knowing so if it does blow up the tranny we will deal with it then hahaha! I've don't that with built up Vw bug motors in our sand rails... Haha bug granny's don't like that much power and swapped it to a bus when u blew it..
