Hello every y-block owners, my name is Anders live in Sweden and need some help from you over there. I have a f-100 1956 with a 292 and t5 5 speed.
I need a new pressure plate and throw out bearing or a clutch kit in the yblock. I wonder if you can tell from what car i can use och a part number from ex (summit). I have stock clutch arm.
I hope you want to help
A Y block with a T5? If I'm wrong or right, a T5 sounds like a modern 5sp overdrive
aluminum case? So It sounds like someone has been in there, like an adaptor
bell housing- possiblity. Most 56's suppose to be 272s? Myself I run a machine & fab
works shop, and to me, If I machined an adaptor, we would use the Y block
flywheel and pressure plate and throw out bearing. The only diference is the
clutch disk "will be the pressure plate diameter but with the hub splines for a
T5. Seems or I think a small S10 V6 had a T5, and if so you will need that
disk which may or may a little smaller, but will work. Just wondering, dont you
have the parts that came out?? If so, "Google is a great invention".
The only thing is, when Y block is mentioned, I think of 3 or 4 speed Warner or
2 speed automatic, thats what they came with, here atleast. And F700 & up
are a whole different ballgame. All I can say without pics or more info.

Anders, your clutch disc is most likely the Chevy S-10 disc. Check with Speedway or Summit, look at what they supply with their kits for adapting the T5 to flatheads. I know some people use this one: 9-1/8" 14 spline/1-inch shaft for a 86 s-10 5 speed.
PS -- I assumed your T5 is from an S-10; if it is from a Mustang, then obviously you'd like need a disc for a Mustang.
Sorry for the late answere and yes I have one of the first prototypes left, the only thing that I wasnŽt satisfied with was the size of the 100 120 140, that I hade made a little skinnier to make a littlebit more room, but on my final design i went with slightley thicker font for the 100 120 140 numbers
This picture is the one I have left If you would like:
As you can see, the 100 120 140 are slightley thinner than the rest.
This is how the one last one looked like:
If you want it, its 500 SEK + shippment, I can take paypal.
Let me know what you think. You can find the complete work on my plogg link in my signature.
