FITS 2PC REAR MAIN SEAL BBC 454 496 ENGINES THAT REQUIRE A WEIGHTED FLEXPLATE.
Many aftermarket bbc rotating assemblies use this flexplate when installed in a 2pc. rms block.
Those using a 4340 forged crank may not require the weighted flexplate. Be sure of what you need before purchasing.

If you're not sure what size flexplate you need, then you should measure your flexplate diameter, and center mounting hole. We have the specs of this flexplate listed below. The 1pc. rms engines have a smaller, approx. (2.0") center mounting hole. The 2pc rms engines have a larger, approx. (2.5") center mounting hole.
It is highly recommended that you replace your flexplate hardware with a set of high quality bolts. ARP is the brand we suggest using. We offer this flexpate as a kit with the correct ARP bolts. See our other listings. The part number for the ARP hardware by it's self is 100-2901. It is also recommended that the torque converter hardware is replaced with a set of ARP bolts.
