I assume you are referring to the steel block plate? It's not a starter shim, if anything it is a starter indexing plate. But, technicalities aside, check with some of the late model Mustang parts dealers out your way. It is reproduced (I got mine from Dallas Mustang).

Check with California Mustang, Mustangs Plus, Coast High Performance, etc.

Hi Tom,
I just had aluminum block plates made for $45.00. THese fit the T-5 or TKO aluminum bellhousing.

I don't know what a depot is but none of the dealerships around here have any.

According to some, discontinued and no help, others said it had to be ordered.

I live in the 91607 zip code if you can find a place near me where I can go get one.

thanks

Hi Tom,
The Ford part is steel. I used to make them in steel and now I make them in aluminum because of demand. Ford no longer makes the plate in aluminum.

Mike, are you sure about the Ford part being steel? Every one I've ever had was aluminum - and they were not aftermarket pieces - they were factory. I know the older ones from the 70's were steel, but as far as I know every one from '79 - up has been aluminum.

He's referring to the Ford Parts depot. Tom, did you take the number Max provided above and give that to your local dealer or are you asking by part name?

I used the number. No one had it in stock but I've got one being shipped, arriving tomorrow.

thanks everyone!

BTW I was at the junk yard today looking at stacks of them. They were covered in rust and dirt. Makes sense being that it was a junk yard but does aluminum rust?

Hi,
I don't know the years but some production plates are aluminum and some are steel. Obviously the rusty ones are steel.
Let me know if that part number is steel or aluminum.

Hi,
If you're looking for an aluminum lite weight version, that's all I make now.
