D5 & D9 Bellhousing clutch fork questions
« on: August 12, 2012, 09:05:40 PM »
OK here goes nothing. I managed to acquire two D5 & two D9 bellhousings. Yeah, it was pricey but I needed 2 of them & it was a package deal.
 
I have one of the D9 forks & I know any 5.0 fork works so I'm good to go for the 2nd one. The problem is going to be the missing D5 forks. I know they are specific to these bells.
 
 I also know the part number for them is D5ZA-7515-BA but what are they out of? Are those just standard Pinto/MII forks?
 
If I can get the right D5 forks I'll probably use those & sell the D9's off. I also have a spare bellcrank bell housing now that I wont need. I've still gotta pick up another T-5 but that's the easy part.

I'll try and remember to look at the part numbers on my old bell (using a Quicktime RM-6063 now) and fork part number.
The only problem I see with the fork I have is the ball on the end of the cable is too small for the fork. Likely going to weld it & re-drill. Or make an adapter.
Fork I have is new.

The way everyone closes the hole is by banging a small hole washer with a ball peen hammer to cup it & weld it over the larger hole. I have to do that to my 5.0 fork when the time comes.
