    Ok guys, I have a little question for you all. I am building a 350/350 combo but not sure which flywheel/starter to use. The engine is a 95 block with center bolt heads an the transmission is a 80's model th350. What is the correct flywheel to use in this situation. this is the first 86-96 style block I have ever used, everything I have ever used in many previous builds has been 70 ' s and older. Thanks you in advance.

    Probably depends if you're using an automatic or standard transmission But either way, you probably want to use one for that year engine, from a truck or a Camaro. Get the starter that matches. And the correct starter bolts.

    Check the starter mount pattern. Some 350s only took the larger flywheel.

    My 93 5.7 takes a gear reduction starter, not sure if that will matter to you but it may make a difference.

    I am going automatic. What has me confused is that when I look at the flywheel for a 95 engine it ask if it is a 4l60e or a 4l80.

    4l60e has 3 lugs on the converter..
    4l60e has 6 lugs..
    Use the 4l60e flex plate and starter ...
