    Yes, but they have to be done correctly. No shortcuts—two buckets, microfiber sponge, etc

    @Frankenchevy

    What are you using for a throw-out bearing? Another subject that seems over complicated in these mismatch of part conversions.

    So are you going to get a new flywheel and starter?

    I'm trying to sort this mess out without spending a bunch of $$ on shit I thought I already had.

    I’m getting a centerforce billet flywheel. My current starter should be fine.

    350 motors are neutral balance flywheels/flexplates and are internal balance motors... its the 400sb and the 454 that are external balance. and the extra tall foot 208 adapter is for flat crossmember before 83.. W crossmember 83-up use short foot adapter.

    Weird, every 350 flywheel referenced in summit and RAs catalog says eternal balance...

    I believe the flat CM went through 84. It’s what all CUCVs have and they’re all based on ‘84s

    The '86 and later engines with 1-piece rear main seals use flexplates and flywheels with a counter weight.

    The 'W' crossmember started in '85.

    I think your scout leader dropped the ball. Cub Scouts had a marble belt loop.
