y-block clutch bracket

Ok, next question, what does the clutch pivot bracket for the 272 y-block look like? The 223 bracket doesn't fit, and it appears too long. Thanks!

Re: 1956 manual trans input shaft

Installed the engine and it went in too easy, and I have no engagement between the engine and transmission in gear, like the splines aren’t touching the clutch disc. I’m going to pull the engine...

Frame rot 1956

So, I found the ever popular frame rot in the front crossmember of my 56 Ford Mainline. Does anyone make a replacement part either bolt on or weld in or am I going to have to fabricate something?...
