My local parts guy says the blanced or weighted flex plate is no longer available. Plan to call bjs on Monday. In the meantime what do you guys think. Is there a difference, im sure there is. Here some pics comparing the two. And what the problem is with the original.
Let me know what you find if you don't mind. I have my 401 up at the machine shop now for .030 bore and hone and installation of bulltear forged pistons, however I did not receive a flex plate with the engine. I have a 727 trans right now but if budget permits (final machine bill) I want to install a 4l80e while I have it all out.

Assuming again that this is for an AMC V8, yes there is a difference. Every displacement of AMC V8 has its own specific balance.
Not sure what that picture is supposed to be displaying. I only looked at the one that came up in the link.
