Well folks Im almost done. After a week of workin on Dads projects, I
finally got to do some work on Tweety. I've got the tranny in, just need to
hook up the driveshafts, exhaust, and linkage. And then put the interior back
together. I did it all with stock ford parts too. First was the pilot
bushing. A 400 bushing fit in my crank, from what I hear I got lucky, as it
wont fit in all of em. Then the spacer plate, used the one from the 400, and
only used one as it was all I had. Then came the flywheel. I got one from a
390 and had it resurfaced, and a new ring gear pressed on. being a stock 74
460, it was neutral balance, so the flywheel will not cause a vibration.
Then came the clutch, I was going to use the stock 360 clutch setup for the
free 360 flywheel I got, but there was not near enough room in the
bellhousing. (Anyone need a 360 flywheel, freshly machined, new ring gear?)
I used a tip from Jeff, and went down and got a 400 pressure plate, diaphragm
style, and it fit fine, its also the larger truck clutch, versus the lil 360
clutch. A 400 pressure plate will bolt right to a 390 flywheel. Then came
the bellhousing. Its a 400 housing, from a Bronco. The tranny came next,
its a T-18 out of a 73 F-100 360. It went right in, like it belonged there.
The trans crossmember is going to have to come up about 3/4 of an inch, and
forward about the same. That comes tomorrow. Im beat. But I promise, after
I get all the burnouts outta my system when Im done, I'll write back and
finish this. Maybe even write a How to for the FTE site, so its on record.

74 F-350 "Tweety"
(and with a 460, 4speed, and 4.10 gears, this gonna be one nasty bird!)
