Re: 1956 272 flywheel

Flywheels also came in a 11 inch version - used in Tbirds. As far as I know, all YBlock flywheels are inter-changable but as noted, have different size clutches

Re: The T-Bird was in a rain storm yesterday

The red on your Bird looks like the 55 or 57 red, not the Fiesta Red (reddish orange or orangish/red) of a 56 ??

Re: distributor questions

I had a Mallory on a Hot Rod (53 Merc with 2 2BBls) and it ran very well. I suggest keeping the Mallory unless you are going for Concours judging

Re: 1955 Ford ranch Wagon/ Differential Question?

Light clunking is normal. If it is a heavy clunk, then it should be looked at.
