I must admit that i dont have read all in this thread. But i use a Wilcap adapter on my build and thought i could put in how i did on my build. The pics and text is from my buildthread. I wanted to have a manual trans and know that wilcap have adapters for all common smallblocks. After some lookingaround i found a 3-speed from a Ford Mustang 66. So i ordered one kit from Hotheads for Ford sb. To reach in to mount the nuts on flywheel bolts i had to expand the hole. Later i hade to cut al the way down to reach. I am not worried about the streinght couse this is how the stock adapter used with automatic transmission is done. It was some different supportbearings included in the adapterkit but nothing i could use. This is just a mock up so i dont need it yet so i mounted it without. Checking the starterfitment. Looks good. I dont see any problems here. The mountinginstructions say the kit is ment to be used by a Mopar ministarter. I really hate the look of a ministarter and cant find any reason to not use a ordinary starter. The adapterkit was supposed to use Ford 10 inch clutchparts. So i buy me a 10 inch cluchkit that was listed from 65 to present to use thru ebay. I dont know if Ford have used different pressureplates during the years or if the flywheel is drilled for another pressureplate. ( The instructions says its drilled for Ford but on the first page its written that all kits is drilled for Chevy patterns.) Its some mixed info and i have wery little experience in Ford and Chevy stuff. But the one included did not fit the flywheel. Looking in my spareparts i had a pressureplate for Dodge 53 with 10 inch clutchdisc. And that one fits perfect. And then i looked on the clutchdisc and think it look close to my 53 Dodge to. So i get my centeringtool made of a inshaft for a Dodge gearbox and tested. It was a perfect match. With a sparedisc at home to i really didnt needed to buy any clutchparts at all. But i used the clutchdisc and the throwout bearing included.
