OK, I have a 7.25" Tilton triple disc and small block chevy. Where can I get a flexplate to go between these two?

There's a flexplate in Speedway that says its for racing clutches, but it has no bolt holes so I don't see how the clutch will bolt to it.

Anyone know how this is supposed to work? I had a one piece 153 tooth flexplate for this clutch, but I broke some teeth on it.

take apart your clutch and the fly wheel part of the clutch bolts up with the flex plate
and then u just put your clutch back together.

We bought our last flex plate at Autozone. Just take your old one along so you get the right diameter. I know there is a least two different sizes because the first one we got was too small in diameter and the teeth wouldn't mesh with the starter.

The other guys are right on. You just have to disassemble the clutch and then bolt flex plate and the hub side of the clutch to the crankshaft hub at the same time. Then just reassemble the clutch. I always try to stack the clutch sections in order so that I can reassemble it in reverse order from the way I took it apart. Probably isn't critical on new, but might make a difference on a used clutch.

You won't need the "special" flexplate, just a standard sb chev and then follow what the other posters stated ie....bolt on flexplate, the back of the clutch plate and then bolt the clutch together.
