Check with your Chevrolot Dealer, ask for a corvette flywheel. they are about 17lbs and will work with a stock clutch and starter. Oh yea, they are about 200 bucks

MRRacing has great prices on used stuff. If you want new, check out Speedway's price on the Ram nodular flywheel, $150. BTW, you can get a mini-starter with both 153 & 168 starter positions. You might want to consider a Vega set-up if you're not gonna run a super hi-horse engine. If I recall correctly, the complete Vega set-up weighs 27 lbs, versus 34 for the Vette/Camaro/Firebird. You can buy the clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing for both set-ups at your local Autozone for $100-$125. Tell 'em '75 Vette or '75 Vega. I've used both, and you can really tell the difference over stock. I've also used the 10,000 RPM "stock appearing" set-up(17 total lbs), but it's kinda pricey. Let us know what you decide, and how it works out for you. One more thing; the bolt pattern changed on the crank sometime in the mid-eighties. I believe it got smaller when they introduced the one-piece rear seal. 3" bolt pattern on newer stuff, 3 1/2" on the older stuff.
