We're mixing and matching a lot of parts, but it's not just a bolt-together. The input shaft of the transmission has to be turned down from .662" to .590" and shortened by about .380".

We're using the Escort flywheel because its a lot lighter than the Zetec flywheel (about 6 lbs less) and the Mustang clutch will bolt on. We're adding a trigger wheel to the front of the engine for the EDIS crank sensor.

Still have to make bushings for the bellhousing dowels to properly locate the bell and we still have to decide whether to mod the block or mod the bell for the top two bolts.
