Score or FAIL ????

So I got a BW T5 yesterday Tag 13-52-028, with the bell housing and clutch arm. $200.

It does not have the Torx head bolt on the side and I have not yet looked for the Timco bearing on the front. The tag indicates an 83 out of a mustang 5.0 or a Camaro or Firebird V8.

I assume it is not a WC tranny

I have a 75 with a mild 350. Do you feel it will work well for a DD or should I get it rebuilt as a WC?

Really, if you dont beat on it, it will last.
Every manual will blow eventually if you beat on it
But then again, "manual shift" an automatic at 6000 constantly and see what you get too
It will be good for the occasional clutch drop of a burnout, but dont get too carried away. The T5 is a little more fragile than a T56 or T10
But, it will be a good driver
