    Need some guidance - I'm building up a 2.8L/T5 combination that's being put into a British sports car (Sunbeam Alpine). I have an '83 2.8L from a Ranger and a T5 from a 96 Mustang. I was told that I need a bellhousing from a 74-78 Mustang II. Does this make sense? They seem REALLY hard to find. Would there be alternatives? Thanks for any insight or suggestions.

    There are probably other bells that would work, most likely the Mustang II version is recommended because it is the length that puts the shifter in the optimum position.

    Mustang II 2.8 bells aren't all that hard to find. They show up on eBay regularly, and I'm sure there are people lurking on here who have one in their pile of spare parts.
