Question on SBC with 1 piece rear main seal

Dear Hot Rodders,

I'm going to change my 350 SBC block which belongs to 1975 with two piece rear main seal to a 350 SBC with one piece rear main seal which is 1986-up.

I was wondering if I should also change my TH-350 to a newer version?
What else is required?

Thanks to every hint and everybody.

Houman

To my knowledge the older TH350 will work fine with the newer SBC. If the original TH350 is giving you hints that it is about to go south, I would keeep it. Of course if you already have a fresh TH350 then go ahead and change it.

You'll need a one-piece flexplate.

...???

Think you mean a flexplate that has the "H" weight for the late model 1 piece seal engines...? (get a flexplate for the 87 and later 350)

Thanks to everybody.

So the flexplate is different?
How about the converter? I'm going to get a TCI Streetfighter. Does it work?

Tks,
Houman

The crank flanges are different and won't accept the older style plate. I believe it does have a kind of an H on it. Either will bolt up to your converter.

My transmission man recommends the use of a heavy-duty flex-plate on the one-piece Chevys. He said the stock ones have a habit of breaking.
