    I took a 350 out of a suburban that had a manual tranny behind it... What do i need to do to convert this engine back to a automatic tranny setup... Can I just take the flywheel off the other 350 from the same year era and put it onto the engine with the manual tranny setup... or is this going to throw off the balance at all...

    Nope, flexplate should bolt right up and you're ready to go. Or if converting to manual, the flywheel will bolt right up as well.
