nope it won`t work. the balance is different and so is the bolt pattern. you`ll need a older 2 piece seal 168 tooth flexplate. but make sure and check your block to see if it`ll accept a staggerd bolt pattern starter. a flexplate from any pre 1986 small block will work. Keep in mind there were 2 patterns for 2 different flexplate/starter combo`s, the straight pattern starter only works on a 153 tooth flexplate, the staggerd works with the 168.

ok,the block has three bolt holes for a starter,so i can get a pre 86 flywheel for it and that would work with the three bolt starter right?

small block starters only have 2 holes.
they can however have a straight across pattern or a diagonal or staggered pattern with different length bolts.

well the 327 that i have has three of them in the block all threaded and they do make a three bolt starter.now dont get me wrong i never knew that a sbc had a three bolt starter all i ever dealt with was two bolt straighht and diagonal like you mentioned.

if there is a 3 bolt small block starter then a picture would be worth a thousand words.
just because I haven't had the oportunity to see one doesn't mean they don't exist so anything new learned is welcome information.

ok ive never seen a 4 bolt starter or even heard of one are you serious????now its been a while since i built a chevy ive been building fords for years so maybe my minds playing tricks on me or whatever but am i correct in saying that most small block chevys have only two mounting holes for the starter.the reason why im questioning this is i took a straight bolt pattern starter and was able to use it on the 327 it came off a l98 350 motor and i used the two holes closest to the back of the block and i am going to use a flywheel for a 84 camaro with the o/d trans im just hoping it all will work together.as far as the three bolt starter i called auto zone and had them pull up a starter from a 67 chevelle with a 327 and he verified it was a three bolt starter.i just want to make sure that this is going to all work together properly,thats all.
