i have a 89 302 complete engine and it is balanced for a standard tranny and was wondering if i could put a automatic flex plate on it and go with an automatic tranny and be fine, or do i need to have the engine rebalanced. thanks for any help.

All you need to do is get the right flexplate. If and I mean if I'm correct that motor has the 50 oz balance instead if the 28oz balance. and you need to count the number if teeth on the flywheel so you buy the same number of teeth on the flexplate as well.

std flywheel to aoutmatic balance factor is issue. flywheel tooth count is not a factor. flywheel to bell housing size is

just get the 50oz imbalance flexplate and youll be fine... starting in i think 1983 they used 50oz imbalance up through the end of the 302. before that was 28oz imbalance. what tranny are you looking to use?
