    Default 460 with Glenwood 4 point mounts

    Does anybody here run a 460 ford with glenwood 4 point mounts? The reason I am asking is that I plan on using a TCI SFI rated flexplate. I believe that Ford had a 176 tooth flywheel for the standard transmission and a 164 tooth flexplate with the automatic transmission. If this is correct was the Glenwood bellhousing built for 176 tooth flywheel or a 164 tooth flexplate? I need to know if the starter will work with this combo.

    Mine clears just fine. I use a starter off a 78 f250. Had to use a shim with the starter but it works perfect. i use a flexplate not a flywheel

    I could be mistaken, but I believe the cast marine bellhousings were made both ways, meaning that there is a 176T bellhousing and a 164T bellhousing (somebody correct me if that's not right). Best thing to do is to remove the bellhousing and see if it is marked (for tooth count) on the inside...or see how many teeth are on your current flexpate/flywheel and then buy the SFi approved unit with the same tooth count. I've seen 164T flexplates and flywheels.

    The Standard Glennwood rear 4 pt is for the 164 T , thier Borg-warner style bell hsg (with top mt starter ) will facilitate either /or I belive .The vast majority of BBF jets use flexplates OE ...Tom
