And the bellhousing will just go straight onto the box without any modifications

There are two types
Early e series had one type 3 or 4 bolt Flywheels
And laters had the 6 bolt flywheel .
So whatever you do get the fly wheel and clutch to match

Hence why I said the 4L one. They're 6 bolt and better.

If you use an EA flywheel you can use the XF Clutch.

But if he wanting to use the flywheel from the current setup he will have to go the early .

no need to start a battle. Just sayin.....

To the OP, the later 6 bolt clutch and flywheel is better.

The flywheel must be from the 4.0l.
There was a change from imperial to metric for the flywheel bolts around this time, but I can't remember exactly when.


If you have to get a new flywheel anyway, then there's no question. Get one for a 6 bolt clutch.
