Get the ford part. It's worth the extra $30

The ford part is better than the imitation parts. By one that is listed by the ford part number. It is not a grabby clutch and that is good. Smooth is where it is at. I haven't had any problems yet on my 89.

No, you just want one that holds the power. Grabby = broken driveline parts.

Rough engagement breaks parts. Having great torque capacity and holding power is what makes a good clutch. The secret to a goooood clutch lyes in the pressure plate.

Personally i would spend the extrat $40 (when you include shipping on your Ebay link) And get it from Americanmuscle (free shipping) And then you can contact them if there are any issues. Not so much for an Ebay item you know? Plus then you are assured that it is the "real deal" and not a cheap version, but just my opinion...

Summit, you'll have it in 2 days plus they have a match all price policy as long as it is the identical part. I have taken advantage of their generosity many times.
