Ford 8.8" rear end Traction-Lok clutch setups
I have finished the second volume in a two volume series on "Swapping a
5.0L engine into a Fox body Ford". This is a short clip from the chassis
setup chapter in volume one. Here I'm showing the Traction-Lok clutch pack
removed from the TBird. I show how to measure pack clearance without using
the special Ford clutch measurement tool. I also tell how Ford's clutch
design has changed since the 80"s and warn against adding fibers to
increase clutch torque. Complete 8.8" rear end repair for the iron and
alloy versions of this rear as well as the 9.75" is detailed in the "How To
Repair the Ford 8.8" Axle" DVD. This is one of ten titles in the BadShoe
Productions video series. The 5.0L engine swap DVD volume one and two is
now for sale. See my web site www.BadShoeProductions.com for details on
this DVD or digital downloads as well as the other BadShoe titles.
