Yes, it will work on a 350. I think you'll have to change the starter head, though. Total weight of the flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate about 27 lbs, very light. You'll definitely feel the difference if you're running a stock set-up. You're lucky to have found one. They're as rare as chicken teeth around here!

Hey 17j, you gonna use this on a mod? Just a word of advice; don't use it with a hi-horse motor. I saw a vega clutch disintegrate 3rd nite out in a limited late model a few years back. He was running a dart-headed 377. But I've also used one in a heavy streeter with a dome 355 with no ill effects. Good luck!

Just wondering 17J, did you end up winning the bid? I read all of this on here and checked it out on ebay. i was gonna bid but I couldn't do it, my conscius (sp) was just too strong. I wouldn't feel right taking something away from ya. But if you didn't win it then I'm gonna be so mad! By the way hawk, leave me an email at bubbat@glade.net

unlike some dumb arses i wait till the last minute to do my bidding unfortunatly i had to go out to the field while it ran out. i still can't figure out why people bid on stuff 3-4 days before it closes just cost you more in the long run if you ask me

Yeah, that's the way I bid, too. Then sit there and watch nervously those last 30 seconds, hitting the refresh button every 3 secs..... it's almost addicting!!
