Here's the other update I promised. If this sounds a little vague or spaced out it's because I'm watching Walking Dead.

I'm planning on using this 1992 Escort (1.9L) flywheel. It's used but in pretty good condition. It had a light surface rust but cleaned up well with a wire brush. The Mustang flywheel bolt holes are 10mm while the Zetec bolts are 11mm. I'll just need to open up the holes to fit some Zetec Flywheel bolts.


We'll be using a release bearing from a 2001 Camaro LS1.


Here's a T-5 from a 1996 Mustang (3.8L V6):


And here it is as we mount it to a bell housing from a 1992 Mustang (2.3L):


Now I need to look at getting a clutch kit, starter, and some hardware for the flywheel and pressure plate.
