I researched and found out that there are 2 piece and 1 piece crankshafts. I determined that the new engine has a 2 piece crankshaft with what looks like a counterweight on the outside of the engine. Also the casting numbers says that this engine came from a 1980-1984 camaro,nova.

My question is if I use the new engine with the two piece seal and I buy a flywheel from autozone. due I have to worry about balancing the flywheel?
Ayuh,.... They're both considered Internally balanced motors, 'n the bolt pattern is different on the respective flywheels so's ya can't get it wrong...

If ya buy a flywheel for a 305, 2 piece rear main seal crankshaft, Yes, it'll be properly balanced...

morcey2 Found the pics. Yes, an autozone flywheel for a pre-87 small block would work, as long as it's not a 400 engine flywheel.

If that shows up, the left is a one piece seal. The right is a two piece (pre-87) crank. If it's the one on the right, a standard zero-balance flywheel will work. I think "zero-balance" is the phrase I'm looking for.

kiaser001 I have compared the cranks and they are different. I upload some pics in the members gallery if you search my name they are the only two pics I have uploaded.

So would a flywheel from autozone be ok?

morcey2 Is the counterweight that you see part of the mounting flange at the back of the crank? 2-piece rear main seal 305s are all internally balanced and that counterweight that you see is part of that balance.

Have you pulled the flexplate/flywheel off the old engine and compared them directly?
