It doesent matter what came off the car if you are going with a manual transmission. You can use what ever size flywheel you want. Chances are the scatter shield is made for the big flywheel but there is no reason you cant use the small flywheel. You can't use a small flywheel bellhousing with the big flywheel, the big flywheel won't fit inside the small flywheel bellhousing. You can post a picture of the starter and someone could tell you what you have to work with. You said you were not racing the car so there is really no need for a scatter shield unless you are Don Garlits. They used aluminum bellhousings on Corvettes, how many horror stories have you heard of them taking someones foot off? It's up to you on what you want to use. If it's a hot rod why would you add weight to the car? everyone else wants to reduce weight.

you are probably correct about the corvette bell, however, I am a safety freak....if you never hear about a corvette bell blowing up, and I put one in, you WILL hear about mine blowing up....gotta big "L" stamped on my forehead.
That being said, dont care about big or small flywheel, just one that'll fit my current starter so i dont have to either buy another or move it....as far as adding weight, cant say it enough...could care less about weight...
Thanks for your help!

LOL!!! it kinda does sound that way doesnt it? Just keeping costs down as much as possible, and being a rookie doesnt help either...figured if there are THAT many choices out there for flywheels, bells, and clutches, why not pick the items that will readily fit?

You can buy a brand new mini starter for less than $75. The rest of that stuff is up to you what you want to use.
