How do I know if I have a 10 inch or 11 inch clutch on my 1995 4.9 inline 6 with mazda 5 speed, before disassembly, without trying to stick a tapemeasure through that little inspection hole and trying to measure that way

Welcome you need to call the Ford dealer and give them the last 8 digits of your vin. They can process the vin and tell you which one it is just by that information

Or you can give me the vin# XXXXX I can call them? Thanks, Marc

Just tried this with the local Ford dealer and he says that nothing came up and that this will only work on 2001 and up.

Can you get me your vin# XXXXX will call someone else!

Hello, I'm Chris.
I will do my best to answer your question fast and accurate using the info you have provided. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.


Different expert here, I have been reading over all of this and do not agree with most of it, The vin# XXXXX not needed and with the vin# XXXXX tech should not need to ask if its 4wd. You have a 10 inch clutch. The 11 inch only came in the heavy duty 150 with a larger engine and the ZF transmission over 8500 GVW. If this helps please dont forget to reply and say I accept (experts name) answer.

Chris , You do need the vin for accuracy! I have been ordering parts and going only by the vin# XXXXX shop cannot afford to making the wrong decision.

Your clutch Disc is 11 Inch That was by a certified ford Dealer
