I read that thread too, it sucks that a resource like that craps out on us. I was going to go with Avalanche, but that means I have to source the clutch parts myself with information posted in this thread, without V-Performance's help, so I want to make sure I get the right (and best) parts for my application.

Just order it all from Knox. Lawrence sells Dale's adapter, and will get you the right clutch set up too.

Nice! I didn't know Knox had the full setup. I'll definitely get in touch with them this week. I thought Avalanche only had the adapter, not the clutch components.

Yeah, Dale sells/makes the adapter. Lawrence not only sells Dale's stuff, but also builds cars too. Since he puts them together, he knows what parts your need.

Josh at Yoshifab sells lots of the required parts for the T5 swap.

I'm parting a 745 4 speed in my driveway for most swap parts. Bellhousing, clutch fork, pedal assembly etc so I can swap my 945T.

Thank you for this informative guide! Its exactly what I was looking for, even though I'm not doing very much at all for performance upgrades (HP wise) I'm still sticking a T5 behind my stock b230f because I cant stand the electric OD. It has served me well but internal 5th seems much better. Plus my granddad and dad are ford guys so I have much of what I need lying around. Ill probably do this sometime before next summer and I'll try to get some shots along the way.

Thanks again!!

OK....here's something I've ran into while performing a T5 swap into my 1991 745T. The M46 bell housing's release bearing "snout"/shaft has an outer diameter of ~1.256" and the Ford release bearing has an inner diameter of 1.430", leaving ~.170" clearance between bearing and shaft!
Is a sleeve required to make the Ford bearing work or has my M46 snout been modified?
