    Bill, a member here bought an aluminum 4 spd flywheel from me back in Jan of 14. We thought it was a 350 part but turned out to be for 455. His real name is Dave Norton in Ohio.
    Maybe someone here will know his member name as I don't have it. Then you can pm him to see if he still has it.
    Hope this helps....

    Wheelz never gets back to me with the final details... he has TOO much stuff LOL... This is the OKC T/A flywheel. Its the lightened steel version more for road racing apps. It looks OK with the balance weight in there. For 175.00 it's pretty fair, but I bought a new one, delivered yesterday from the guys that manufacture these for 249.00 with free shipping brand new. Where do I send a spark plug? Thanks, Bill

    I have the TA one like the one pictured in the last 2 pics. Its lightened to 25 lbs. But i have 10:1 starting line ratio so it will be fine with the lighter wheel

    Hey Billy Yachtsman, I apologize for dropping the ball on this... I am in the middle of setting up a HUGE warehouse sale, full of vintage 30's thru 60's old car stuffs... the fello passed away in Feb 2 years ago & I was asked to help out. What a huge undertaking.
    Anyway, Im not here much these days anymore because of a lot of things... My bad.

    Thats OK Wheelz... we still love you LOL... Anything for 1964 Buick Specials? I need convertible/4 speed rear frame strengtheners, a rear sway bar, Hurst T handle, lighted mirror, 1964 passenger side rear view mirror, ONE or all 1964 ventiports for the front fenders, maybe a 1965 GS 4 speed drive shaft, old (vintage) oil, water and voltmeter gages (mechanical), 1964 special steering wheel, blue 4 speed pedal pads, and maybe a few odd trinkets LOL.

    Keep us all in mind here. A pal needs Model T Ford stuff too! Arghhh... Yachtsman Willy the Pirate!
