Default T-5 to white block throw out bearing.

What are you guys using for a hydraulic throwout bearing when using a T-5 behind a white block? This is what I came up with. http://transmission.moderndriveline....ip-on-p508.htm

Wasnt sure if there is a cheaper option out there or not.

Looks like the 850r single mass flywheel is the one to use. What clutch are you guys using. I should be around 300 hp. Wouldnt mind going a little over kill on the clutch but nothing crazy as it is a daily driver. This is going in a 745.

Reach out to "theFullBanana". He is the only actual user with a T5 behind the Whiteblock. I seem to recall that he used a McLeod hydro release bearing.

I should say, he has a running setup, not a jack stand queen.

try this first: You can use a bearing retainer from the 05-up V6 cars to convert it to a hydraulic internal slave cylinder .

Now that being said it will depend on adapter and space available. Also Howe and Speedway Motors make some economical choices.

... I haven't gotten far enough to have a good answer yet... Still stuck on a flywheel before spending the other coin.

Yeah, a lot of chatter on this one, but I agree that not many have completed it that I am aware of. DeeWorks has an adapter available, but no install instructions.

Short list:
960 AT bellhousing
850 Flywheel
850 PP
Pilot Bearing?
DeeWorks adapter plate
Ford clutch disc (they came in multiple diameter sizes over the years, just a matter of finding the right one)
TO bearing... Hydraulic internal stock or a universal.

Not sure any of that helped but there you go.

I had most of that figured out. I like how deeworks website says the swap has been well documented but I have yet to find much of anything documented.
