    So this is probably a stupid question, but google is doing me no good and I just haven't messed with one of the clutches in a 5.0 before or any mustang for that matter. I bought another flywheel and had it turned for my fox body and it bolts up to the crank just fine then when I went to bolt the pressure plate on the holes didn't line up. The flywheel I bought was off another fox, the year of I am unsure. The holes on my pressure plate are right at 5.5 inches apart and the ones on this flywheel are much closer together. Are there multiple flywheels for these cars or is my clutch wrong or what? I had a flywheel that it bolted up to just fine but the teeth were sheered off. Any help would be wonderful, thank you.

    Can you compare to the "old" components to the new? I would think that would point out which item is the problem IMHO....

    I know the clutch I have is not for the flywheel I bought. I was just wondering if there are two different styles or if one was from another vehicle. I ended up just getting the clutch that was on the flywheel before I bought it and I am going to run that for now.
