170 manual flywheel

Post #1 by Invectivus » Wed Mar 04, 2020 12:00 am

Is the 3 speed manual flywheel on a 170 the same on a falcon and a bronco? Are there different flywheels for the 170?

I have a 170 out of my falcon, and someone wants one for their bronco, and i don't want to send them something that won't work.

I'm pretty sure it's going to depend on the year...for example a '62 Falcon is going to have the smaller 8.5" clutch and a 2.77 transmission, while a later one (67 and up?) will have a bigger clutch disc for a bigger (3.03) transmission.

The ONLY safety device we need is a 6" sharpened steel spike bolted to the center of the steering wheel of EVERY vehicle.

My van had a 170 w/the 3.03 and 8.5" clutch when I got it. The 170 was a swap, came with a 144, but the 3.03 was stock. The van is a 64 and was the first year for the 3.03. I don't know the answer for the Bronco though. Come to think of it though, I don't think the 170 ever got a bigger bell, so it should be fine I would guess.

Hi, my 66 Bronco, first year, has the large bell housing, 9" clutch, and if I remember correctly, a flat flywheel. A friend of mine was cleaning out and I saw a 144. Small bell housing pattern and small carb opening. Good luck

This is the back of my 170. I thought all 170's used the same 132T flywheel. If his starter has 3 bolts, he will use this flywheel and an 8.5" clutch.

You're absolutely right. It also depends on what you want to use it for.
