Post 351w to C4 help

I am attempting to bolt a 351w to c4 tranny, unfortunately the bellhousing I'm using causes the starter to be approx. 1/2 out of place. Which bellhousing and inspection plate should I use? Any suggestions of where I can find one?

There are two different flex plates, one has 157 teeth and the other 164 teeth. (pretty sure on those numbers, someone will correct me if otherwise)

My brother-in-law is putting this same combo in his '67 Mustang, and was having trouble with it lining up because he had the wrong flex plate.

What tranny did you originally have you may have to find a different bellhousing or starter maybe BBB is right on the teeth 157 early years 28 oz flywheel and the 164 is later model and 50 oz make sure if the motor was balanced to either the 28 or 50 oz you use the same weight or you will rattle your engine to pieces

351s were always 28 ounce imbalance no matter what year. The bellhousing you have determines the flexplate to use. It sounds like you have a 164tooth bellhousing with a 157 tooth flexplate. When you get it all together, the flexplate should completely fill up the bellhousing. Just be sure to get the right balance otherwise youll just have a really big vibrator <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" /> ....good for takin ladies for rides, but not too fun after a while
