just a moderator note here;

a member may not read all the posts before their answer is typed and posted. You folks know this, I am just mentioning it.

Nothing like a wrong flywheel plate to goof up an install.

I have drilled flexplates before, and successfully. The thing to remember is that the holes do not line the converter up, nor do you want them to. That job falls to the pilot on the front of the converter. So if your holes are just slightly larger than the OEM ones, it will not hurt anything. If you have a flexplate with the correct set of holes to use as a template, or if your converter has the strap type mounting lugs, where you can mark the holes from the backside, you can duplicate the bolt pattern. Or, with no flexplate or converter straps to use as a template, you could take the one you have to a machine shop and have them drill an accurate pattern.

that helps more specifically im not sure how to post a picture but you can google a 305 th350 plate to see. If i turn the converter to line it up with a plate hole the converter stud is covering the inner half of the flexplate to converter mounting hole are you saying just drill the original hole larger then with the the use of a high grade washer or bolt with a bigger head perhaps?? if you dont mean this could you show me an appropriate location to drill

Does your flexplate have 6 "pads" or just the three? This one has 6:



If yours has 6, just drill the ones with no holes. If it only has 3, and your holes will have to become "slots", I'm not sure I'd be comfortable with that.

BTW, the one in the pic is at Speedway Motors, like $24, http://www.speedwaymotors.com/1986-9...ign=GoogleBase

If yours looks like the one above, minus one set of holes, you could drill the blank pads. Now if it has 6 holes, and the pattern you need is different than either one, I think I'd wait for the right one.
