So all I need is the tranny if I already have the 258 bellhousing?Originally posted by high5:
<STRONG>the ford np 435 will bolt up to your bellhousing. you will need a different clutch because the ford uses a different spline count than the t176. you will probably need the ford throw out bearing too. you keep your current pressure plate but you need to make sure you get the same diameter clutch disc as your pressure plate uses. another thing is the pilot bearing. you'll need a different i believe. it would a goodd idea if you give advance adapters a call though. they should be able to tewll you in detail what is involved. i just tried to give you alittle of the info i know. i had a 258 with a t176 and swapped the 258 with a 351w and then later swapped the t176 for a np435.</STRONG>
