I found a 351 out of an F150 with the manual trans. If the clutch has a 10 spline I don't see why a t5 won't work. It's 2 less things I have to buy to do this 351 swap. Lemme know. Thanks.

Work and hold up are two different things.  I don't think a T-5 will last long behind a modded 351.

My t-5 2nd gear lost it's teeth behind a HCI 302.

My concern is the flywheel and bell housing dimensions as well as the starter initiation. I read that the ZF5 Flywheel may be overall larger diameter and not work in a t5 bell housing.
