I've got a fresh 440 engine i want to fire up on an engine run stand. It's internally balanced.
I've also got an empty 727 case I'm going to use behind it , for something to mount the starter to. The starter is a new early 90s style mini starter (like used on a dakota).
Now a flywheel. Do i use a 130 or 143 tooth? Can i use any chrysler flywheel that's neutral balanced? Like a 318 flywheel? I can find new flywheels, but I'd rather go with a used one (not as expensive).The engine will eventually be used with an automatic transmission. I only need a flywheel to crank over the engine.
Thanks in advance!
 
Do you have a junk torque converter?
For my stand I used a cutoff wheel and sliced the converter just behind the starter ring gear.

I don't unfortunately. I'll search the web... thanks!
 
Would this one work? It's said to be from a small block
Thanks
