    I’ll grab some pics when I get back to the shop, and no shipping is on your dime. The assembly was removed because the owner wanted a easier pedal to push down in traffic and because it had a hot spot that made it a pain backing trailers up a hill. I’d either clean it up with a DA or just have it resurfaced, I’ll sell you just the clutch if you want to go new on the flywheel.

    Well I was completely wrong, this is just a vanilla luk smf clutch kit, nothin special so dunno why I’ve kept it around. I’ll take $175 plus shipping if you want it. D04BDFE4-A386-4809-9814-EBABA34318FA.jpeg

    Probably, (due to THAT transmish) but it's got this non-mechanic head scratchin.........

    A 460 trans will live fine behind an idi but as mentioned before a small block bell housing can’t be made to fit an idi

    Nope. Not a direct bolt up, but can be made to work. I forget what all has to be done.
    But if staying with the zf6 idea, that one would be the one you want.

    Might work. Go to Midwest trans website and compare part numbers between the 6.0 and 7.3 zf6.
    See of the shafts and stuff are the same.
