It seems,...like there are a few different flywheels that have different number of teeth ?
I need a starter so I need to know the tooth count.
Also, what size is the clutch ?

I have a brand new billet steel fly and a dual disk clutch for an FE. I don't suppose they'd work on the 460 ?

I know, all I meant was I have a Quick Time bell for my FE, but I need one for the 460.
How do I find out which 460 bell I need, the date code on the block ?

there are 2 bells mainly, scj/cj BOSS 429 and 351m 400 bell, either will fit, but both use a diff wheel. , when you find a bell let me know ,and ill explain the wheels diffs

For the 385 series to T56 I believe the only difference between the two Quick Time bellhousings is on one the clutch fork opening is at 7 o’clock and the other is at 9 o’clock. This is from memory

How do I find out ?
Also, I believe it's not only fits the T56, but also the TKO, unless I'm mistaking.

And thats how misinformation gets spread!!!
The RM8010 is for a T-5, TKO, TKX not a T-56.
The RM8050-7 is for a T-56 with a 7 o'clock clutch fork position and its SFI.
The RM8050-9 is for a T-56 with a 9 o'clock clutch fork position and its SFI.
Also i beleive that the one of them was specifically designed to be used with the factory Ford T-56 like from a 03/04 mustang cobra instead of an aftermarket unit like a Magnum. In all honesty that information was rattling around fresh in my brain many beers ago.

Also Quick Time made or makes the RM8051 which is used with a GM T-56 or a Viper T-56.

not a stupid question, your good

I want to know which bell you wind up with to let you know which wheel to use

for exp 351 m 400 truck bell you need a 184 tooth 390 fe flywheel

for scj cj,or BOSS 429 bell you will need a 176 tooth bell

either will use the same starter, block saver plates are diff

If you use a lake wood you again need the 184 tooth wheel


I didnt want to throw out a bunch of info, and mess you up
