My Lakewood is pre 1978 !! I installed it in 1979. Housing, just like Joel's, has two sets of holes for mounting a starter pending which flywheel you have, same as the locator cup and it's two locations.dadsbee how do you hold in the starter bottom bolt hole? You usually have pictures, I'm not being as wise ***. I had to make than part at the time it was on BO. Had the cup and fork mount.
Yours is definitely different than mine. Wish I had the fore thought to take pictures of everything. When I did a disc brake conversion I took some.
Oh yeah. If you plan on running a stick behind an engine that's making power it's a good idea to run one. Heck, it's a good idea to run one behind a stock engine if you like taking the rpm up. A buddy of mine just about destroyed his 66 Mustang due to a clutch explosion. It did destroy the transmission AND the engine. It happened after making a run down the road and running it into the middle of 3rd gear and let off of it. Coasting down is when all hell broke loose. He said it was coming down from about 4k rpm. It put lots of nice size holes in the firewall and frame rails....dash included. Got his radio too but he didn't find any holes in his legs at least. It took off all the bell housing bolts, broke the crank, took out the input shaft of the trans and cracked the case. It was a low 12 second 289 Mustang....You guys are getting me to thinking that maybe I should be keeping this thing. Didn't realize so many of you were running them on street cars....
Mine went on the Bee in 1979 Joel, the week after my then GF's brother lost his right foot in his '66 GTO. I'm a tad skiddish of my new car without one..You guys are getting me to thinking that maybe I should be keeping this thing. Didn't realize so many of you were running them on street cars....
