Default 3.35 input shaft for t5 tooth count

I've been looking on ebay for a new input shaft, none list the actual gear ratio, just a tooth count. Anyone know the correct length and tooth count for a 3.35 first gear t5 input shaft when using with a deeworks adapter?

I thought it was a 23t, but I'm not sure, in the same boat.

I think it's a 23T as well.

Call up Astro Performance, buy one from them. The chinabay ones have some issues with wear. My new Tremec one from Astro was around $110.

It would be extremely nice to know the correct length, as my trans ID tag came up as a 2000+ v6 car, but it had been used in a 95 v8 car before I bought it. So probably still not the correct length but it may have been changed. Mustang forums don't bring up anything concrete either.

9,1/16" or 9.25" I think...

Unless it was in a Fox, chances are it's wrong. The SN95 body style had a longer shaft and bellhousing to match, as their means of shifter positioning.

I have a known SN95 shaft at home that I can measure and count the teeth on, came from a 95 5.0 3.35 1st box.

I did get a chance to run by the house on lunch and measure , but since its got a 3.8l bell housing on it and the tip of the input shaft protrudes past that I'm sure its incorrect. So I'm ordering a 23 tooth 9.25" input shaft that's listed as being for 85-93 5.0 mustang.

But if you'd like to count just so we all have some peace of mind on the subject, that'd be fantastic.

tip for all: make sure you have the correct front bearing cover. the ford motorsport part with the steel collar is what I used on my car. it's meant for the fox V8 input shaft length. But on our lemons car, we ran into an issue when trying to use the V6 bearing cover with the sleeve cut down to match the height of the fox V8 cover. we had swapped to the v8 input shaft, but retained the v6 bearing cover.

At the base of the sleeve, the aluminum part of the bearing cover protrudes further out from the front of the transmission. it hit against the release bearing and partially disengaged the clutch.

Unfortunately I wasn't there when it was all put together, because I found out later that the trans didn't mate up to the adapter plate until it was pulled in with the bolts (bad juju), which should have been a sign that something was wrong. Indeed, the first ~20min of the first stint of the race was spent limping the car around, trying to diagnose what could be wrong....why does the clutch not hold from a roll in 2nd gear? will it get better if I keep driving it??? nope! we found out the hard way. lost 2-3hr track time pulling the trans, realizing what had happened, and swapping in out spare that had the correct bearing cover already on it.

I have one from a -260 tag number box. 23 teeth, 10" overall length (9.25" to the back of the gear). This is longer than what most people use for transmission swaps. I made my own adapter plate that is about 1.25" thick and the pilot almost bottoms out in the crank shaft bore; most adapters out there are around 1/2" thick.

Did it fit in the tunnel with the extra length?

The 260 box is what I have, that's why I'm swapping out the shaft.
