This page needs more information or an article about engine types
over the years used in Chevys. Any info would be appricated.
One subject I'm always trying to find out is what flywheel or flex
plate goes with what engine. The way I understand it, there are
basically two kinds of flexplate/flywheel for Chevy small blocks, the
big and the little one. The big one is a 168 tooth flywheel and the
little is a 153 tooth. This is useful information if you are looking
for a flex plate or flywheel for your conversion or a starter.
The engine in early CJs often called the "Iron Duke" use the small
block Chevy pattern, which should be the 153 tooth flywheel. The bell
housing of the transmission used in this Jeep should bit the 168 tooth
fly wheel just fine if you were bolting a V8 of some sort.
The way I understand it, most of the V8s before 1991 used the big
flywheel and most after use the little one, but I'm not sure on this.
Corvette Starters: The Corvette used a nice Denso high torque and
light weight starter. This is a great and relatively cheap way to
upgrade the starter in your Jeep with Chevy or Buick engine.
