    I checked with parts and it is a Windsor but they show both 6 and 8 bolt flywheels. Because of the age they can't run the VIN to tell for sure which one it is. The only way will be to remove the engine or transmission and look at it. Sorry.

    Rich DUSA

    Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

    I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
