Flexplate for mark viii TC

Is this the correct flexplate that you need when running a mark viii TC instead of the stock TC?
thanks
Jim

Looks right to me. 6 bolts and it appears to have come off a stang or mark... There should be a stamping on it with the FN10 and SN95 chassis numbers and years next to them somewhere on the plate. if you really want to be sure, ask him to see if he can take a close up of that for you.

I got a great deal on a TC from a 99 GT with 20K shipped for $50. Those cars have an 8 bolt crank, but that shouldn't matter if I put on a Mark VIII plate on my 97, right? All the 11" TC's have the same bolt pattern if I interpreted the Gospel according to Jerry correctly...

Does anybody know for sure?

Thanks

Pete

Pete, you need one from a 6 bolt cranked Mustang. The 8 bolt will not work.

TCCoA, there's no better way.

no no no no.... all 11.25" TCs have the SAME bolt pattern. you get whatever flexplate you need to adapt them, 6 bolt or 8 bolt. see jerry's article for the part #s.

So I did read the article right? I thought I needed part number F3LY-6375-A. It's for the 11" converter (which the 99 GT has) and the 6 bolt crank that my Cougar has. Is this correct?
