Re: flywheel

Don't know the answer to your first question but as to using the smaller tooth count, you must use what your bell housing calls for and the starter to match that. You can't put a 157 in a bellhousing meant for 164 or 180..... [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: flywheel

I believe Ford changed the balance factors on the 302, (5.0 L), in the mid 80's. Remember, these are externally balanced engines and Ford puts balance both in the harmonic balancer and the flywheel or flexplate. Since you are crossing that mid 80's line with this swap, you might get some vibrations you were not counting on if you mix and match. B.O.B.
