4bt

I put a zf 542 from a big block ford in my jeep with a 4bt.I used a dodge flywheel a dodge clutch and a ford throwout bering .It works great after about 7500 miles.You have to make your own adpt,if you usa the big block trans as they have a differnt bolt pattern than the small block.

I have the flywheel you need for $100. The clutch is just any clutch from a 5.8/5.0L truck engine. Pretty much whatever the trans came out of. I'm assuming this is a smallblock version?
I have a small block ZF so the flywheel from a 4bt and a clutch from any ford small block manual trans is that correct? What about the starter?
