CLUTCH REPLACEMENT
I'M GETTING READY TO INSTALL A 3 SPEED OVERDRIVE UNIT IN MY 56 RANCH WAGON WITH A T-BIRD 292 MOTOR . SO I PLAN ON REPLACING THE CLUTCH AND THROW OUT BEARING WHEN I MAKE THE TRANS SWAP. WHERE CAN I PURCHASE QUALITY REPLACEMENT PARTS? ALSO I'VE BEEN TOLD THAT IT IS AN 11" CLUTCH.. ANY HELP TO DIRECT ME WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED.

according to HOLLANDER INTERCHANGE MANUAL the 272 and 292 engines used a 10 in clutch. the 312 and some heavy duty applications used the 11 in clutch. there is a possibility that under extreme conditions the clutch could slip in overdrive with 10 in clutch.
