    Default T-10 clutch in a 1960

    I have a 1960 original 283cid with a T-10 4 speed. Code shows tranny to be a 69.
    Does anyone know if the original size/type 10" 10 spline will work or do I go with the 69 clutch which is either a 10.5" or 11" 10 spline. The 60 clutch is the 3 finger type where as the 69 is the banjo type. The bell housing I believe is correct for the 60 as it has the starter mount on it.
    Thanks

    A 69 B+W ? The clutch would be ok but somewhere in those years there was a long and short throw out bearing .

    The C1 bellhousing was designed to accept a 14" 168-tooth flywheel, but a 10.5" clutch. What are the casting numbers and assembly stamping on the T-10 you believe is a '69? 10-spline input shaft dimensions are all the same, and all Corvette clutches use the "short" (1-1/4") throwout bearing. Any 10.5" diaphragm clutch for the Corvette application with bent fingers will work fine; I doubt if any 11" clutch will fit in your bellhousing.
