If bellhousing runout is an issue with a clutch,is this something you would notice the first
time you let out the clutch,or when you first start the car.What are the symptoms.The machine
shop that assembled my motor/clutch,I assume did it but Im not sure.I started the car for the
first time last week,and backed it out of the garage with no apparent probs.But a friend of mine
brought it to my attention that I shoud check to see before I have problems.Would I know backing it
out of the garage and pulling back in?,or will it be something that will break under acceleration?

I believe bell-housing runout is measured in hundredths of an inch. It would have to way off to feel it just by driving the car. But if it is off over a period of time, I believe the input shaft/bearing will fail eventually because everything is not true. Are you using a ford bell-housing or aftermarket? You shouldn’t have to worry about a factory bell, but an aftermarket one must be measured.
