comment Six to Eight Engine Swap 1968 Mustang, what parts are required
@Paulster2 found this, but no idea where it's from or if it's reliable. This site says Ford 170-250 L6 385, and Ford 5.0 V8 411. But have not idea the source.

@Paulster2 Nope, Transmission is out of something else entirely. Not even sure what yet. Whatever my junk yard guy finds me.

@Paulster2 will be putting an AOD not electronic in. Engine is out of 86 Mustang. You have documentation on the engine weight? Two friends arguing about it. Also are the springs different from a 68 with L6 vs 302?

comment Is vibration for a new clutch job normal?
@TheOne It's going to put extra wear on the transmission, clutch and pressure plate, but it may not be enough to be significant.

comment What is the use of gears in a device with a fixed gear-ratio?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because It's not about vehicle maintenance or repair.

There is currently nothing in the help center that says these questions are off topic or prohibited in any way. Please see the discussion here

@TheOne There could be other issues, best to get a second opinion from another mechanic. Actually being able to check out the car would be needed to confirm.

@TheOne Sanding it doesn't fix it, you have to machine it. It has to go on a lathe. It may be time to consider small claims court, they lean toward the consumer most of the time

@TheOne No it shouldn't hurt the clutch, waiting a few days should be fine

@TheOne That just makes me think the flywheel was out of round beforehand, or the pressure plate was bad, both of witch should have been fixed with the clutch job.

@TheOne That is of course assuming that the vibration is coming from the clutch and is not a preexisting condition that you didn't notice before.

@TheOne I have updated my answer about checking for run-out. But the bottom line is this is a comeback on the shop that did the repair and they should be responsible for the repair cost, with the exception of the cost for machining the flywheel if they didn't charge you for that already. But they should not charge you for the labor to get back to it because it should have been done in the first place.

@TheOne he should have machined it while he was there or at a minimum checked the run out while he was there. The parts can be sold in a kit but they aren't preassembled I guess they could have be held together with the pilot tool that is used to line up the clutch to the flywheel but it cannot be preassembled to the pressure plate because the pressure plate has to be removed to unbolt the flywheel from the crank

@TheOne When it's done with the clutch job about $40 which is just the machining labor. To do just that requires complete disassembly again so that's going to be pricey about 10 hours labor. Depending on engine size, I still need that information. That's why you do it while your are already in there.

comment Change calipers on both sides?
Oh and I don't know enough about the car you have, to tell you if their are slide kits for the caliper. If the slide is sticking and not the piston you should be able to get by without changing the caliper. Even then depending on the price of the caliper it might not be worth messing with. Calipers for some cars are as low at $15 US.

comment Change calipers on both sides?
@Jerreck Didn't take it as such. Just trying to explain why my answer was credible. I could see a parts store trying to sell you them in pairs just for sales sake. But I really can't see any reputable automotive shop trying to sell them in pairs to you. If they are the other side is not broken/damaged I can't see any reason to do it.
