I bought a 2001 GT 5 speed used off of Craigs List, 2 weeks later the clutch exploded at 1am on a Saturday night. I looked up the Vin code says I the early 10.5 clutch and PP. Order in from American Muscle, tore car apart. The clutch disk came apart in about 15 pieces. I put all old parts for the scrap guy. Wrong clutch PP wont bolt up i have the 11" clutch. So I called American Muscle again, as I was on phone I seen junk yard yellow paint all over tranny. So I figured some one swapped with the late 01 Tranny. So they sent me another clutch 11" Ram HDX for the late, for the same money ($80.00 more) and no frt. It comes in rite size clutch but mounting holes (6.25 apart) wont line up when I mount on dowel pins... Called them again they have no idea whats wrong, they want me to buy a $300.00 flywheel. Will this flywheel bolt to my car??? Heres my flywheel

I actually just replaced my clutch on my 01 a few weeks ago. I have a late 01 with the tremec. The late 01 uses a 6 bolt Flywheel while the early ones use an 8 bolt flywheel, if I'm not mistaken. Im on my phone, so I didn't see a pic. I hope this somewhat helps your problem. And be sure to replace throw out bearing and pilot bearing while your there. I used FRPP from AM, supposed to be the best. Good luck.

From what I've gathered, it seems like you have a strange bolt pattern on your current flywheel. We've sold tons of these Ram clutches and haven't had any issues with mounting to the factory flywheels. It makes me think your flywheel is from another year Mustang like a 05-10 or another Ford causing the current clutch to not line up.

Either way, I just wanted straighten some info out and make things right for you. We DO have a flywheel that will fit your current 88951HDX clutch. I'm sorry for any confusion you had over the phone, but the CS Rep was definitely off on his specs. We have the RAM Billet Steel Flywheel for the 6bolt crank and a 11" clutch for $309.99 that will work with your Mustang. Since you've gone through so much hassle, I'd be happy to hook you up with this RAM Billet Steel clutch for $285.00. This should take some of the edge off the cost and will definitely end your flywheel problems!

Shoot me a PM if you're interested and will get things rolling ASAP!
