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?

I do not know what a WC tranny is,, please enlighten me,, is it a better tranny,, like a 350 vs a 400 turbo but in a stick?? Matty man,, never to old to learn,,
horseman,, thanks for the info,, I would say as long as you dont do 6000 rpm shifts and launches you`ll be fine with the T5,, I would run it,, are you going to use a hydraulic clutch T/O bearing?? Matty man
