    I need a flywheel for a TBI 350... I think that those are the 1 piece rear main ones...

    I've got a friends 12" clutch set and flywheel on my trailer for this weekends swap meet. Just not sure if it is for a 2 piece or 1 piece rear main. I'll call and see if he knows when he gets home from work and get back to you. He was only asking $35 for it all.

    The one piece rear main crank has a smaller 6-bolt pattern on the back where the flywheel bolts on. Essentially, just a smaller in diameter bolt pattern than the older 2-piece flywheels.

    Actually, I was just thinking about it more, and I have a friend that pulled the '91 Corvette 350 out of his yellow Suburban, and is putting the motor in a car with a TH350. So, he should have the manual flywheel that will work for you.

    2 piece RMS flywheel/flexplates have a 3.48" bolt circle, the 1 piece RMS flywheel/flexplates have a 3" bolt circle.

    OK... so are we looking for a flywheel or flexplate? I have a flywheel off my new crate engine. Newer style (one piece?). That what you need?

    OK, I checked the bolt pattern distance on my flywheel. It measures 3" center to center. The large hole in the middle is 2.050". It came off my Ramjet 350 engine. Which I believe is the one piece flywheel. I've attached pics. If this is what you need let me know. moonfam@usamedia.tv
    It weighs 28 lbs. Don't know how much to ship from Truckee, Ca. to you. I'll let it go cheap to offset shipping. Paul

    Flywheel?

    Manual or automatic? I have a great source for lightweight manual flywheels, both 168 tooth, and 153 tooth. 2-piece or 1 piece main seal.
