    here is the stats. got a 302 out of an 83 F-150. had a C6 tranny behind it. putting it in a 66 mustang with a C4 transmission in it.

    what weight do i need for the flexplate? 28 ounce or 50 ounce?

    thanks guys and gals.

    You need to check and see what the balance is on the one that it has. Most likely it will be the 28 ounce but you need to check.

    That is your best bet to gtind it off if it doesnt say on the flexplate anywhere.
