update 12:23
well i went and rented a pilot bearing puller and that thing sucked. didnt work at all. so my dad and i ended up chiseling the old pilot bearing out. then inserted the new one in.

i forgot that i wanted to put new gaskets on where my headers meet the exhaust so i started cutting bolts. i got the new gaskets in place and just need to tighten everything up. eating lunch now.

What clutch did you end up choosing to put in there?

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.

1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

CQ is great. I had my flywheel done there. When I took it in, it looked like a road map of a big city, when I got it back there wasn't a single crack crossing the area the clutch grabs.

Looks like a nice clutch, too. Rated for towing/snowplowing, off roading, street-strip...I doubt you'll overpower it.

well i took my flywheel to oreilly's and the machine they have is for brake rotors not flywheels. they told me to come back in 30 minutes i got back there in 25 minutes and it was done CQ told me 2 hours. and CQ was only $30 same as oreilly's. needless to say i have 3 other auto parts stores within the same distance so i will not be going to oreilly's ever again.


yep thats what i thought too and i think that if i ever do a 350 swap i can reuse everything assuming it all still looks good.

tightened down the bolts for the exhaust. what a pain. the idiot that made this custom exhaust didnt know anything. i could have done a better job and i dont know how to weld.
