I'm collecting parts for a future project, but I will admit right up front I have no experience working on manual transmissions, especially piecing together stuff from 50 years ago. This is going to be going in a Model A, and this is just for a basic street car, no track time or anything. I have what I believe is a 1963-1964 Olds 394, block #585786, a Ford T10 transmission with the dual bolt pattern, and an old Cragar bellhousing to connect the two. The engine had an automatic, but I recently picked up a 166 tooth 14" flywheel, which matched the size and tooth count from what was on the engine, so I think I got the right one. So now, I'm not sure what else I need. My first thought was to look to see about a stock presure plate, which is available. However, after some discussion it's been brought up that this may not be the best for my application. Perhaps it's a little weak? What do I look for? Are there standard bolt patterns that will bolt up to my flywheel without having to have it redrilled? Would the factory replacement be fine? The one I see is a diaphragm style. What is the difference vs the 3 arm style? Being that this engine had an automatic, I was not expecting the crank to be drilled for a pilot bushing. However, it is drilled somewhat as I was able to bolt the transmission to it without the input shaft hitting anything. The specs for the stock pilot bushing I found say 1.093" OD, however the dish in the crank is probably close to 1.75". I've heard it's possible to make a pilot bushing, is that what I should do here given a stock style doesn't seem like it will fit? Lastly, for now, I don't know what kind of throw out arm the Cragar adapter is made to accept. There is a raised flat ledge, and there is a bolt through it. Does anyone know what was intended to be used? Hopefully the pictures will show it good enough. I know there will be more questions in the future, especially if I start getting more components pieced together. This is for a future project, but I would like to be able to know what to be looking for.
