Flex Plate Needed

Recommended Posts

I'm a newby to this site, and really could used some help.

 

I need a good flex plate for a '71 510 wagon with a Borg-Warner transmission, and have posted a wanted ad with no results.

 

Rod's Datsun parts still has none, and this is all that's keeping a new motor from being installed and enjoyed.

 

If anyone has a tip or a source to persue, any help would be appreciated very much.

 

Thank you            = )

Have you tried Rockauto?

If it's just the starter ring you can buy them separate and have it welded on.

If you can not source one I have in the past carefully removed the starter ring gear and flipped it and welded it back on the center.

The last [and only] time I bought a starter ring gear, [for my RL411 BYW] I found that the ring gear and  flex plate assembly came pre-balanced and was far less expensive than the ring gear alone.  No spot welding and then find a sober balance technician! Check your would be suppliers!  RockAuto was the real source.
