Help with flexplate

yesterday I remove the engine from my 67 camaro its a sbc400 it is mated with a th400, well remove entire engine with flexplate (no trans, no converter) and drop it in my 64 cutlass. and vice versa ;the cutlass has a 95 350/th350 and do the same stuff , remove the engine and drop it in my camaro so the idea was to have a 350/th400 on it, I was getting help from a friend and we didnt check the flexplate to bellhousing clearance , its rubbing hard , i dint crank it but hand turned it rubs :s

what flexplate should I use then?? without removing the 400 engine again

the problem is only on the 67 camaro with '95 350/th400

400 small blocks use a externally balanced flywheel so it must be used with the 400 engine so it looks like you`ll have to do some light grinding for clearences. If you bolt on a flywheel that is not balanced to a 400 you`ll destroy the main bearings. You could get a balance plate then bolt on a smaller flywheel, but you`d have to use a straight pattern starter. It`s said the balance plates don`t work real well and will cause the engine to be a shaker.
