Looking for some assistance regarding the V6 Odd fire identification. When looking for parts, ie. HEI distributors, manifolds etc. how does on know what will fit and what won't. Do all buick V6 parts interchange? Are the engines the same regardless of transmission type. Can I use a engine that came out of a jeep w/ an automatic and put it in a jeep with a standard? or visa versa. I'm asking because I read somewhere that engines that were used with the automatic were internally balanced and standard transmission engines are externally balanced.
While were on the subject I understand that there is two flywheels available, 75 lb. and 100 lb. I'm thinking more weight would equal smoother running and more torque. I'm sure you'd sacrifice a little bit on responsiveness though.
