I currently have a wanted ad out on a couple sites for a good 53/54 Chevy 235 PG flexplate. I have come to realize how rare these are becoming. I recently converted my Chevy to 12v and since then have had a hard time getting my 6v to connect right with my flexplate...lots of grinding and such going on. I went as far as to have the starter rebuilt , new starter drive, new 12v solenoid and so forth. Better...but still grinding a lot. I am realizing that the issue may just be my flexplate is worn or becoming worn. Now I haven't pulled the starter and turned the whole motor by hand to see how every tooth looks. Kind of a pain on the PG setups. Instead I'm going to take it to a guy that can put it on a lift and pull back the PG tranny and take a look at it that way. I really want to keep my factory 235/PG setup....she goes 60mph all day long which is fine for me. So my question is if I can't find a good 53/54 flexplate...has anyone had a new one machined? Is it possible? Cost? If not, what the next best thing once mine finally goes out? 12v flexplate from a later 235 and a 12v starter? Will that set up bolt to my 54 powerglide? Does anyone repro the 168 tooth 12v flexplates?
