    I ran into a predicament and I would like to have y'all's savvy input. Installing a 2004r in place of my TH 350 on an 80 Z. Z had stock 350 engine.The 2004r torque converter will not match any hole pattern of the flywheel. What now? Different flywheel? Different converter? Help!

    Flex plate, not flywheel.

    Does your flex plate have a dual bolt pattern?

    I bought a new flex plate when I swapped a 200-4R into my Camaro but I don’t remember the bolt pattern size.
    (I thought it was different from the TH350.)

    I kinda figured. None of the holes line up. I only find flex plates for 700r4 as far as fitment. None for a 2004r. I'm going to assume they are for both. Would that be accurate?
    Oh.... And what's the teeth count 153 or 168?
