    Vince,
    The Nova is looking real good. I will be looking for the "underneath" shots of the car soon.

    Brian,
    If i understand your question, I may be able to help.

    If it's an externally balanced 406, then you'll need a external balance flywheel. You'll know when, you pull the flexplate, if it has a weight welded to the crank side of the flexplate, it's externally balanced.

    If the flexplate doesn't have the weight, it's internally balanced, you can run a flywheel for a 350 etc.

    Don't run the wrong flywheel though, ask me how I know.

    BTW, Glad you're back. Hope this helps.
    Earl,
    No matter where you go, there you are.

    Guess I'm alittle late to answer your question Brian. Earl answered for me. He is correct.
    The Nova is a SBC pump gas motor and I'm running a Doug Nash Pro shifted 5 speed. My plans are to run it awhile with this combo and maybe run stock eliminator in it next year. Plus raise hell on the streets
