It's been awhile, but IIRC the cast crank 292 flywheel uses 1/2" bolts to hold it onto the crank. So if you were to use a V8 flywheel, you'd need to drill it out for the 1/2" fasteners. I think- pls. double check this.

The tranny bolt pattern has to be the same as whatever bellhousing you use. There are at least two bearing retainer hole sizes (again, IIRC), so see what hole size and pattern that your tranny needs and use the appropriate bellhouse to match it. There are bellhousings that will fit but would be too small for the large truck flywheel, too. So the diameter of the flywheel also matters.

Some info on Chevy bellhousings can be seen here.
