    hey all, i was replacing the clutch today..
    found out that i also am replacing the retainer tube and have to heli-coil the pivot bolt (i did a lil' number). any how i just need to know where i should go to get a new gasket to seal the front plate to the trans.. i pulled the front plate off after draining, just to see the gears and remove the input shaft.. also have to get the other piece of the retainer tube out ;-)

    lmk & thanks in advance.

    edit: do not bother mentioning ford parts, wondering if there is a quicker route or what you'd recommend..
    otherwise to ford i go!

    FelPro *may* have one...not sure but your local Autotrash might have one.

    For all Ford parts at cost plus 10% (and all around nice guy)...call Steve @ Tousley Ford

    hey that sounds good; however, I need a gasket for the input shaft.. anyone know where I can get one? I need one pretty quickly!

    also can anyone put a word in for me- I really need an input shaft! anyone that has one lying around, or has a contact at a shop (i know its sunday) that could pull some strings and get one to me in a hurry?

    if you need the seal that goes around the shaft just go to ford. nothing wring with their parts.


    thats why i posted the silicone. seals and gaskets are different and a t56 doesnt use gaskets. just silicone between the case sections and shifter handle. seals are used on the IS and OS

    yea i need the input shaft seal.. i'm going to go to ford and get that part, probably just order a stock retainer tube, unless it's cheaper to go with the $100 mcleod..

    now i just need to get my buddy to do a helicoil on the pivot bolt.. :nonono:

    did you have the TSB for the new front section/retainer tube done?


    its a known issue for the 03s to break the tube. mine was when i bought it.
