Mustang Falcon Commodore Heavy Duty 8 1/2 Inch Clutch Friction Plate
Heavy duty 8 1/2″ (215mm) clutch friction disc with a 10 teeth 1 1/16″ spline pattern
Heavy duty 8 1/2″ (215mm) clutch friction disc with a 10 teeth 1 1/16″ spline pattern. This allows Borg Warner T5 gearboxes sourced from the USA and Australia with this spline configuration to connect to smaller diameter clutch setups such as those used in the Ford Pinto, Ford Zetec, Vauxhall 2.0XE and Saab B204/B234 engines.
Please refer to the Borg Warner T5 information page and chart to ensure that your input shaft has the correct number of teeth and diameter. You will need to carry out a final check on your own input shaft. The shaft spigot end may need to be ground shorter but will usually fit without modification.
If your input shaft spigot end is 19/32″ (15mm) then our spigot bearing will fit inside most the crankshaft of the above donor engines and will accept your input shaft.
Specially made for RWD Motorsport.
Suitable for use with any Borg Warner T5 gearbox and engine combination including:

The shipping took a little longer for me but, great communication with me in the time I was waiting, will buy again in future
I await feedback on the spline interference issue as communicated. As supplied it's a force fit over the 10 tooth Falcon input shaft, so hasn't been installed as yet.
Also, the clutch side of the rivets just inboard of the actual pressure plate force lands "just" clear the standard 36mm wide pp force land by no more than a mm over their respective diameters. I dont suspect functional issues but it is close to fouling & may with some PP tolerances..
I am using an Exedy brand cover assy - the dims for the force land are the same as an existing but used one I have in stock.
