    The Tc Should Be Bolted To The Flex Plate With 3-4 Blts There Should Not Be A Flywheel The Teeth For The Starter Are Welded To The Tc.

    A flywheel is for a manual trans-it is much thicker and heavier than a flexplate. It also has a solid face on it, for the clutchplate to press against. A flexplate is for an auto trans. It is much thinner and lighter than a flywheel.Usually has large holes in the face of it.
