Interesting find today. So after raceweek I was on the hunt to repair my RXT. When I bought it, it was well used. Usable but not perfect. So knowing that as well that all RXT/RST part interchange I was finding another one. With that said I found one from a Mustang GT500, part number 691807. Picked it up for $300can, it is brand new, can still see the cross hatch in the pressure and mid plate.
Left setup is a rxt1200 and right side is a rxt1000. Now anyone paying attention will notice that is not a ford flywheel, in fact it is a Chevy flywheel that it is bolted onto. Turns out it fit the 10.5” clutch pattern. SO lesson of the day for clutch guys, bring some sort of reference on your purchase when mix-matching, you could get lucky like me.
With all that said the rxt1200 pressure plate works on the newly acquired rxt1000, so I am back in business for a strong running clutch again way under the rebuild price Mcleod wants.
