I have a 69 Mustang with a 351W. I bought a flywheel for it off of E Bay. It bolts to the crank shaft but the mounting bolts for the new clutch don't line up. The distance from one set of holes to the other is 8". the distance between the shared holes is 3 1/8" Does any one have any ideas?

balance ??

you probably need the year also. on the 5.0 engines they changed the flywheel balance weights between early 302's and the later 5.0 engines . I don't know if they changed the 351's between early and late too

Sorry, the last response was right, I was thinking flywheel too torque con. You need to figure out what year, make that flywheel was out of. If all the splines and throwout bearing fit on your trans fine but,the pressure plate will not bolt to the flywheel? HMMM? try to figure out the trans info, I think the engine bolt pattern stayed the same for years , I'm not sure.

flywheel info

I've done a few engine-trans swaps. you need some one knowledgeable about what parts you can use/ nail head buick to ford... olds to early ford. ford overhead to lasalle trans. chevy to jeep. chevy to land cruized. corvair to vw. chevy to international farm truck.. etc ford to ford should be easy the old ford performance book listed a lot of ford info..
