    Cool 1965 Buick 300 cu.in V8 into 1943 Willys Jeep Modified

    Hi there,
    I need a manual FLYWHEEL & PRESSURE PLATE for a 1965 Buick 300 cu.in V8, that I'm mating up to a 4 Speed T-18 gearbox & fitting to a Modified 1943 MB Willys Jeep;
    Anyone out there able to help me, & able to ship to New Zealand at my cost ?
    I have 5 Buicks, a'68 Wildcat Custom Sports coupe with 430 cu.in, a '68 Wildcat Custom 4 DrHdTp 430, a '67 Electra 4 DrHdTp 430, a '66 Skylark convertible with a 425 Nailhead & Switch-pitch Super Turbine 400 & a '63 Wildcat Sports Coupe with 401 Nailhead; 3 of these are projects & 2 of them ( the '68 Wildcat Hardtop & the '67 Electra) are our everyday vehicles for the last 29 & 20 years respectfully)
    Hope this is of interest out there & any help on the Flywheel & Pressure plate would be greatly appreciated, thanks,KiwiJeff

    I'm doing the same 300 swap into my 71 Commando with the T18/Dana 20 combination. I'd like to hear anything you've learned about the flywheel question. I've heard I can use the 225 flywheel if I have it balance matched...

    www.TAPerformance.com has billet flywheels in their catalog, may also have left over OEM stuff as they do engine rebuilds.


    being in New Zealand, you should check out Rover flywheels. the Rover v8 is the aluminum version of this engine architecture ( 215ci / 300ci / 340ci / 350ci / 3.5L / 4.6L ). even if it's not a direct match, you might be able to adapt something.

    the guys over at BritishV8.org should be all over this.
