Have a 84 C4 Corvette with 700r4 trans and standard torque converter. Pulled engine and swapping for a new vortec engine from a 1998 Tahoe. Just been rebuilt and machined etc.
Question is since the new engine is a 1 pc rear main seal and original engine was a 2 pc rear main seal so different bolt patterns for flexplate. Can a 168 tooth flexplate fit the original trans and torque converter?

Yes, but you will also need to swap the starter.


Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
