    I have a newer 350 engine that I am currently rebuilding. Picked it up from a wrecking yard for $500 including all the accessories...not a bad deal considering all I got...anyway, it is out of a 91 Blazer. I have an 85 w/305 in it currently. Will the flywheel work with the 350 or do I need to buy another one? I have a 700r4 tranny and am NOT looking to convert to a manual. Thanks for the help as this is my first actual complete teardown to parade rest and rebuild the way I want it engine.

    You need a flexplate for a one piece rear main block 1986 and later ( prior to current motor style ) .
