This is on the back of my spare engine. I take it to be from an auto but I assume the ring gear is the same - it looks it to me.

If it's from an auto then I think it's more likely to be the flexplate that goes between that and the gearbox - I spent forever looking for one last year and they're like rocking horse :turd:

They are mate i can't find one at all, i think i will need to see if any others fit like a 2.3 or something.

Pretty sure you're sat on a flexplate worth a pretty penny there Peter!

I only paid £35 quid for mine last year :shock:

I think Summit had starter rings for sale. You just need to know dimensions.

Blimey Dan, that's more than I paid for the engine! Might need to flog it then😄 Thanks for that.

They are crazy money because they are a bloody nightmare to get hold of. Mine had some slight wear on the edges so had to be changed and I shit thee not - three months it took me to find one. Tried every gearbox specialist, scrap yard and ditch I could find and just by chance I saw a guy selling an entire engine on ebay with one on the back of it so asked him to take it off and sell it to me which he duly did :lol:

Not sure how much there is for a demand for them - I would imagine not very often seeing as they are only for the C3 autos, not even sure if it is interchangeable with the pinto/v6 without checking the part numbers but would assume they are probably different based on the fact that the one I linked has a different part number compared to mine though could be because it is for the Cologne but may still fit both the essex and pinto? No idea.

Either way, I call first dibs - I'll even take my finders fee for a buyer (usually £149.99) off your asking price of £150 ;)

Was it 138 or 139?

Same one fits for Mustang II and Bronco

It's a 138. I bet it would cost a fair bit on shipping to get a flywheel from america but i'll see if i can use the part number and se if there is one in UK, thank you.
