So a couple yrs ago I purchased a used mini-starter on this forum and didn’t think to ask if it works with an automatic transmission. Between then and today I’ve had a complete custom set of stainless steel headers built around using this starter. I’ve just figured out that the starter is for a manual transmission. I’m kinda locked into the starter due to the header fab, so now I’m wondering if there are flex-plates available that will work with this starter??? Suggestions welcome.

It’s a robbmc starter. I have an engine plate but don’t know it’s origin. Trans is a C6 if that matter.

Any way to tell which flex plate this supports?

I found someone selling the engine plate I have pictured that is indicating it fits 78-82 Bronco and 77-82 trucks. So does this define which flex plate I should be using?

Unless i'm missing something you just need a flexplate for a big block with a C6, only difference being internal or external balance.

If you balancer spacer is smooth it's internal and it the spacer has a big weight on it it's external balance.

Rotating assembly is internally balanced. So which flex plate works for internal balanced? Summit shows both 164 and 184 tooth plates for internal balance, which is why I was trying to identify the correct flex plate to match the block spacer.

Sorry for all the BBF noob questions,

Since the engine is internal balanced the flexplate should be without counterbalance weighting, correct?
