If you have a bellhousing for the big flywheel, you can still use the smaller flywheel, the difference will be the starter. Most of the mini starters are made for either size fllywheel, they just use different mounting holes on the block.
So let me see if I got this right....
Buy a 10 1/2 inch clutch?
Buy a stock GM flywheel for 1 piece seal block?
I dont have a bellhousing yet, but was considering the Mcleod 8633...
The starter I have now which fits in the current 700R4 will not fit the above items?
