    A friend of mine has a '53 Ford Victoria with a 8BA V8 in it and we have a S10 T5 box to go in it.
    We have acquired this bell housing which we were advised we would need but can someone help with what adapter and clutch disc we will need? the box has a 14 spline shaft.
    Thanks

    Speedwaymotors.com has a few different kits available. You will need the size of your current clutch pressure plate and disk size. 9" or10".

    Is the 1953 EAB the same as a 8BA?

    I read somewhere that the EAB is more powerful but have not found any info to verify that

    check out Cornhusker Rod & Custom here on the HAMB. Gary can assist with tech questions and provide any parts you need for the conversion.

    +1 on Cornhusker. Gary will sell you just the adapter or up to a complete kit including clutch:
