Just about ready to install motor & trans
(351W-T5Z) and I have a M-6392-C (Mcleod) bell housing from ford racing . Is there any clearance issues that I should address
before I put it in?
Thanks
Martin

The bottom flange of the bell will protude below the frame about 1" (I trimmed mine off as have a lot of members of the forum) The flange on the side of the starter will have to be trimmed back right to where it flares out for the starter in order to clear the small square tube on that side of the engine tranny tunnel transition. You should be able to find some pictures if you do a search.

I had to trim the passenger side of the bellhousing on mine.

Additionally, I had to clearance the slots in the trans mount a bit.

Thanks a lot for the info, my bell housing is in the barber shop for a trim all around , and I will cross my fingers and hope it goes in on the first shot.
