Hi all, Just to say hello and introduce myself. I recently bought a facelift 1973 Mk1 Capri 2.0 GT. Dark blue with beige interior. Its a std V4 Essex engine with auto box. Plans are to do a number of upgrades ie, twin headlamps, PAS with electric pump, uprated ARBs and replace Laser wheels with more original steels.
I decided to convert to manual gearbox and have been working that over recent weeks. Got a long input shaft T9 5-speed box, Granada Mk1 bell housing and later propshaft. Also got a flywheel off a manual box'd engine.
Not sure if this gearbox mod has been done before to a V4 but hopefully it has as I've got one big question to ask which has me stumped at the moment.
Which clutch arrangement should I use. I understand the friction plate needs to be a 23 spline. The flywheel dowell pins appear to mate with an 8.5" cover plate. But I don't know which Ford model clutch parts to buy.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
