It is a fly wheel not a ring gear and yes it will work. I had kinda the same problem years ago and I had put the fly wheel on backwards.

Chevrolet Small blocks have basically two sizes. The 168 tooth and the 153 tooth. Some call the 168 tooth the 14 inch and the 153 tooth the 12 and 1/2.

305 and 350 starters will interchange as long as you put a 153 on a 153 and a 168 on a 168. Some applications are different as far as the room they take up ... but do basically bolt up. I like to use the small mini starters ... they are small, gear drive and are prone to resist the heat better than some original starters.

Actually you have a flex plate. Flywheels are used with manual trans and a pressure plate and clutch. Some flywheels have a pressed on ring gear and some are one piece. Not being a Chevy guy I'm not sure if your flex plate has a pressed on ring gear or not but I would bet it does.

If you are talking about rear ends, yes. However there is a ring gear that is part of a flexplate on an automatic or flywheel if its a manual trans. Not all flywheels/flexplates have a separate ring gear. Some are machined but most are friction fit which require heating the ring gear so it can be installed. Here's a picture of a Napa replacement flywheel ring gearfor a 1970 Chevelle 454 with a manual trans.

On chrysler products the ring gear used to be on the Torque converter. An actually a flex plate was also from the old Mopar days, it was just plate that sort of looked like a big Y that the converter bolted to.

True. The early fluid drive Chrysler transmissions (predecessor to the torqueflight) had a "flywheel" that included an integral torque converter which was basically all one unit. That said, since the late '50s automatic transmission "flywheels" have been called flexplates and you won't be able to find a "flywheel" for an automatic in just about anyone's catalog unless you use the term flexplate.

As an example, here are two searches on the Jegs web site. Note that the search for flywheel does not return any "flexplates" for automatics and in order to find and automatic "flexplate" you have to search using that term.

Jegs search for flywheel

Jegs search for flexplate
