    I'm putting an NV 3500 behind a pre 1986 SBC. I have a pre 1986 Chevy clutch set. Will this work? If not, what will? Any input will be much appreciated.

    should be fine I'm running one in my 62, but I've got newer motor. are you going to mount the master cylinder on fire wall? I've done a few of these , they work great.

    Sounds like the pressure plates are different? I've only done this with one piece blocks

    yea mines two piece im wondering if i use a 1 piece flywheel if thats the 1/2 inch im looking for
     
  7. use the correct flywheel for the engine, and a diaphragm style clutch. (takes the short t/o brg). i had one behind a 1960 348 with the same clutch and press. plate i used with a muncie 4spd.

    Use a flywheel for a pre-65 sbc that has a bolt pattern for an 11" clutch. Buy a clutch kit for a 1996 ck-1500 with a 4.3 engine. This will bolt up and work with the hyd throw-out bearing on the NV3500.
