I'm changing out the old flex plate with rivets with the new type and the one I see on Macs that is supposed to do that looks square......I don't know how square fits in a round hole.

If you can find one I would replace that one with a full circle style. The riveted ones are a source of problems. Chuck

Maybe Carl Lynn, on this site can help. There are several people on here with a few y-blocks laying around. Hopefully one of them can help. Also check EBAY etc. I'll do some searching from this end too. If you do find one please post.

CASCO shows a flex plate for a Fordo, but it is marked for an air cooled.  Is there a difference?  I would start calling the Tbird part stores to see what they have.  If not available new for what you have, try Hill's in Ohio as they have a lot of used parts.

I found the flex plate on Macs automotive website..........I ordered it and now I need to know the torque setting for the 6 screw caps or bolts that hold it to the engine.........I have a shop manual but it doesn't list flex plate torque setting.......did they call the flex plate something different in 56 when the shop manual was printed?

I guess I just saw the picture and jumped too quickly. Typical, sorry if it got your hopes up.

Probably the same as a standard shift flywheel.  Same size bolts were used but were shorter  I assume.
