Use the 5.0L bellhousing, BUT.....if your '78 Mustang is a V-8 you'll need a 302 flywheel with a 28 oz. imbalance. A post '80 5.0L uses a 50 oz imbablance flywheel and will break your crankshaft.

Usually, a pre-1980 flywheel for a 302 (or most SBF's) will be the 28 oz. Think of the 302 as having died a "metric death" in 1979, then being reincarnated as the "5.0L" in 1980. I'd buy the flywheel new.. You might get stuck with a 50 oz. if you go the E-Bay route.

You'll need a new bell, trans mount, shifter, clutch linkage and driveline...."put a wide ratio RUG in a II, with a little grinding on the doughnut rar the stock manifolds work.

The oversize bell may require spacing the radius arm bracket cross member back a little (in one car it didn't , in the other car it did).

RUG shifter needs spaced back 1 1/2 inches more or less". .....
