    Before I jump headfirst into this I figured I’d ask the more seasoned gearheads what to expect.

    I’m putting a S10 T5 into a 1948 Ford and was wondering what to expect around the center X-member. I was hoping to retain the stock wishbone mount location but again, I’ve never been down this road in this year chassis.

    I plan on utilizing the Offenhauser Flathead to T5 adaptor bellhousing so that dimension is finitely tied to the clutch shaft location.

    Hoping I’m overthinking a simple situation.

    Thanks guys!

    So I’m looking at these pictures, the T5 fit in the x-member above the stock mount?

    What did the stock wishbone hit that necessitated is splitting?
