    I am mating a T18 4 speed from a ford to my Dauntless 225. I have ordered the correct pilot bushing from Novak and need to get the clutch setup. If I understand correctly, I will use the pressure plate for the 71 CJ5 dauntless motor and will need a disk for a Ford to mate up with the input shaft. Does anyone know what disk I need to order?

    The stock setup will work for the clutch, but I found a Luk Pressure Plate and Centerforce disc was the best combo.

    The Pilot Bushing has NOTHING to do with the clutch. It is based on the input shaft diameter of the tranny (inner diameter) to the Crank on the engine (outer diameter).
