Yeah, it's got a 168 tooth flexplate on it now. That's coming off and going into the "parts for sale" pile and being replaced with a flywheel. My Nova has a Saginaw 3 speed in it for now. It eventually will be a Muncie 4 speed. I looked for an SFI scatter shield with the bellhousing starter provision, but had no luck in my search. I also looked into the old cast iron bellhousing with the starter provision, but had trouble finding one for a reasonable price. I'm putting this car together on a budget, so I'm looking for the cheapest fix for the moment. Down the road, I may change it up for something better, but for now, the adapter plate with the bellhousing starter looks to be the cheapest/best repair.

Those oil pan support 'rails' are used on most all "wrong-side" dipstick blocks, at least they've been on all of them I've had. If that's even what's being referred to...

Is it just me, or do those oversized photos cause the text to not fit? Or this might just be another problem w/MY old 'puter box?
