ford flywheel and clutch question

i need a flywheel for a very mild 70 model 302 ford. im used to just buyin the SFI rated stuff, but money for this one is rather tight. so does anyone have any suggestions? id prefer new, but someone may know where i can pick up a used one reasonably. also, will it make any difference that the tranny is a T-5?

Also, ill need a clutch for this car. its a 66 mustang with 3.20 gears. were swapping to the hydraulic clutch actuation, so pedal pressure should not be much of a problem. but i do not know what clutch kit to use in this application. so if anyone has any suggestions on manufacturers, proper parts, etc., it would be greatly appreciated.
thanks
Michael

You have to match your clutch diameter to the flywheel. Old ones were 10", late stuff 10 1/2". The big one has a lot more holding power. A T-5 bolts to the old standard bellhousing using a thick adapter. I prefer a diaphram clutch.

302s will wear any flywheel from a 6 bolt bell housing engine. 260/289/302, 64-81. Make sure the flywheel teeth and overall diameter are the same.

Most all the Mustang supply houses have the stuff in either diameter.
