AMC's are externally balanced, so unless you take the motor to a shop to have the entire assembly re-balanced, even if it were to bolt up it would tear your motor apart.


FYI I have 2 360 flexplates

That is all. Thanks.

Why would you rebalance the assembly when you can rebalance the flexplate itself? The trouble with that is finding someone to do it and then finding someone to do it cheaper than the cost of a new flexplate ($40?).

It also sounds like he already has a 360 flexplate and wants to use it on a 258, so I don't know if he cares how many you have, you freaking flexplate whore. :tonka:


Edit: I just remembered that you're a V8 manifold whore, also. :sonicjay:

You are correct, sir. I have a 258 (4-speed) in a J-truck, and a TF-727 auto from a Waggy. I was wondering about mating the auto to the 258, but didn't know what my flexplate requirements would be.

I just sold a TF-999 flexplate for dirt cheap (from a 258/TF-999 setup). If I should have kept it, I'll probably kick myself. :tonka:

So, is a flexplate independent of the transmission model, and based more on the motor then? Would I use a flexplate from a 258/TF-999 auto setup with a TF-727 then?

Thanks for the input, guys.

From the AMC V8 point of view the flywheels/ flexplates are motor dependent.

With a flywheel it's a matter of just getting a clutch disc with the right size and number of splines, autos would be more of a torque convertor to flexplate bolt alignment.


And pp, your a ******

So can I take a flexplate from one 258 motor and use it on a different 258 motor? How are 258s balanced?

258s have neutral balance, IIRC, so the flexplates will swap with each other (and with 4.0, as well)
