    OK...

    I mentioned in my other post that after measuring my balancer I definately will need a new balancer (the one I have is a 305 balancer... [​IMG])...

    now I have replaced the flex plate also, and I am wondering if there is anything else I may possibly need???

    You may need a different timing tab - I'm not quite sure if 305's and 350's use a different one. Other than that, you should be good to go.

    if you go to Autozone, they have 2 different balancers. the first one was a big one and second one is the smaller one (don't remember #'s) but be sure to get the smaller one cause the big one dosn't clear the crossmember. im pretty sure the other parts store have 2 different sizes also.

    awe scooby, I with I'd have read your post before I went because I already got back from autozone (and it is 35 minutes away)... [​IMG]

    anyway we'll hope I got the right one cuz it is going on.

    I hope not Jeff... man it has been a dogfight from the word go for ya. Just deal w/ the timing cover deal and it should be pretty much set to rock. The old pulleys and stuff should all work. If I remeber right we had to do a little messing around to get the pwr steering pup bracket on but that was cause of the heads he used on his. Not sure on yours.
