I am having some difficulty finding a throwout bearing for my 11" LUK clutch kit that fits my bellhousing with a C5TA-7505-B Fork. This is a bellhousing for a 4 Speed toploading to a 72 Small block windsor. Have any of you faced this issue before> If so which throwout bearings did you use? This is a truck bellhousing.

Ran that bellhousing many years ago. I don't recall the lever specifics,
but the clutch release bearing is the standard Mustang V8 piece.
The old Bower/BCA/National 614038 Bearing
Now your only concern is will that LUK pressure plate work with that
TO bearing. It should work with diaphram, B&B and Long Style.....

Didn't run the clutch release lever in your photo.
It's been a long time but I think I ran the C3AZ-7515-A 260 CID Mustang unit.
I think I recall the C5TA bellhousing using the fulcrum that's physically part
of the bell? It should have a drive pin that's used as an anchor for wire clip
that keeps the clutch release lever held in place to the bell, but still lets
it pivot, just like on the Mustang. (The Cobra steel bell is like that too)
Is your C5TA like that?

If your fulcrum bolts onto the bell, that's no issue. Just get the right
piece.....

Doesn't do I thing for me. Take that stupid clutch release lever out and let us see
the fulcrum. You could be nearly to a solution......
Hopefully your fulcrum looks like the one in my photo.

Oh you're talking about that thing. I don't have a good picture of it now, but I can tell you that the fork pivot stud looks like a rounded ball and the clutch fork slides into it from the inside. It definitely does not look like your picture, GT289. The fork and bellhousing looks similar to the pictures below.

Yeah, that's an aluminum bellhousing you got there.
It's not the iron one I'm thinking of. I have NO experience
with that one. This is the C5TA bell I'm talking about.....

C5TA-6394-A

Nope. Mine is definitely steel and looks like the picture you showed me. It's almost as though the fulcrum was swapped out. I did neglect to mention that I have a mexican mustang.

Doesn't look like steel in that photo.
Doesn't matter. I have zero experience with that one. Doesn't seem
possible that that ball-pivot fulcrum could belong to anything from the
60's, even if it was truck.
