383/727 flex plate wanted

Post by mygasser » Wed May 08, 19 10:39 pm

hi all, the flex plate on my 383 was bent when i got it so i'm after a replacement. it's from a 71 jensen interceptor (if it makes a difference) with a 727 box.
cheers, neil.

Internally or Externally balanced engine?
Different Flex Plates.

I have several old out of tag SFI B&M IB Flex plates, much better than stock ones.

I'm pretty sure mine has no balance weights but I will double check this evening, thanks.

None of the factory flexplates have balance weights, some of the aftermarket ones do. Measure across the convertor bolt holes, there are at least 2 different diameters and I'll see if the one I have is the correct one.
