Right clutch for Pontiac saginaw trans

I want to put a saginaw in my 77 Trans am with a 400. What clutch set up do I need to buy? I am guessing something from the late 60's or early 70's like a Lemans with a 350. I am not sure though. The trans is a course spline. Is there a Pontiac 400 that was paired up with a saginaw? thx very much.Craig.

i have a saginaw in my '78 T/A right now and waiting on a doug nash 5-speed. i used a RAM street/strip clutch and it works very well. i bought it out of summit. i dont know if they ever put saginaws in T/As. i have because i converted from an automatic and i picked up a rebuilt sagina for 100 bucks. you dont have to worry what transmission you have aslong as it is 10-spline and it is gm. just choose a clutch that best fits your application

What size clutch you use depend on your flywheel size. If you use a ten and a half then you can use about any ten and a half GM clutch assembly for a ten spline transmission. If it's an eleven inch then get one for a 71 455 GTO or Firebird. These will have an offset facing that will clear the heads of the flywheel bolts. A Chevrolet 11in clutch assembly doesn't have the offset and the springs on the disc hub will rub the heads of the flywheel bolts. Two of the best 10 1/2 in *** to get is one for either a 69 Ram Air GTO or 69 427 Corvette with the ten spline clutch.
