sn-95 v-6 t-5 behind a 5.0 February 26, 2013, 02:09:24 PM So, I'm sorta in a bind. I was just laid off when my company went under. I am going to montana for work (9 hr drive) and need to provide my own vehicle to get there. I found a 3.8 t-5 for $150 locally. I think I found a way to make the 3.8 bellhousing work.The 3.8 uses a 164 tooth flywheel with a 11" clutch.5.0 uses a 10.5" 157 tooth.The bellhousing puts the starter 1/4" or so away from the fly wheel.After making some rough mesurments, here is the plan.3.8 sn-95 t-5 and bellhousing80's f-150 164 tooth fly wheel. 50oz imbalance same diameter and tooth count as the 3.8.94-98 v-6 11" clutch kit.Fox clutch cable.Not sure if the stock 5.0 starter will work, or if I have to go to the mini starter style. Gonna mock it up on the engine on the stand, mesure the starter compared to the new bellhousing and old auto dustplate.*edit* update.Final parts list.5.0 1987 f-150 flywheel.5.0 1987 f-150 clutch kit.92-96 f-150 5.0 manual transmission mini starter.99 v-6 mustang trans.1989 mustang gt pedals and clutch cable.I re-used the stock driveshaft, crossmember, and trans mount from the aod. Reverse lights were spliced into the aod wiring. You will need a connector for the t-5 reverse lights. Try to use a 94-98 transmission. The 99+ had a few differences, although they are stronger. First, there is no where to put the nss wiring. I ended up just jumping mine so it will start with the key. Second, the sensor in the trans for speed won't work. The 94-98 trans should work fine, or one from a 94-95 gt, but the parts list will be diferent for the 94-95 gt.The v-6 trans uses the larger flywheel and clutch, like the f-150. I am unsure if the v-6 uses the 3/8" or 3/4" offset starter. It would be easy to figure out. You could reballance a v-6 flywheel to 50oz and run it with a standard mustang 3.8 clutch from any parts store. The mustang uses meteic fasteners, the f-150 used standard, which was the reason ehind the f-150 clutch.Clutch feel is light, everything fit like it was supposed to, and anything not mentioned here has been covered in a bunch of other t-5 swaps. Feel free to ask any questions.*update*I have replaced the offset sn-95 handle with a straighter one from a 1989 supercoupe. I will post pictures of the difference after. I also have been using the automatic console plate. haven't gotten around to throwing the upper boot on yet. all 87-04 lower rubber transmission tunnel rubber seal thingy seem to be ideticle. i happened upon a new one at the junk yard for $2. I never did seal the colum shifter hole. I plan to just get a rubber plug and stick it in there.
