A have several 143 tooth flywheels and a 130 tooth unit. Asking about both. Big blook and small block applications.

Thanks

I am responding to your question from what I have read and learned accorning to Jamie Passon "Chrysler A-833 Transmissions" book. The 143 tooth flywheel was used on the 1967 440 powered cars and used 11" bellhousing casting # 2843234. In 1968/1969 the same 143 tooth flywheel was used on the 383 and 440. But the bellhousing changed in 1968, so one has to be sure they have the right bellhousing #2843234. In 1969 the bellhousing changed again to #2892626, it still had the same size retainer hole 4.805-inch diameter but had a 3-speed bolt pattern. I know as I have both bellhousings and learned the hard way.

In 1964 the first A-833 was used behind a big block and it had the 130 tooth flywheel with a one year only bellhousing #2463019. The 130 tooth was used on 65 big-block B & C Body using bellhousing #2468370. In 1966, 67-69 it was in several applications of A body and B-C body cars up to 383. The bellhousing changed to #2468372.

In 1970 every V-8 (383, 440 and Hemi) used the same 130 tooth flywheel. The hemi still used the eight-bolt flange design, where the Wedge head V-8 engines retained the six-bolt flange design.

From 1971-74 there were no changes to the flywheel. In 1971 it was the last year for the Hemi engine, so the eight bolt flywheel went away in 1972.

Again, in my research I have found that the flywheel and corresponding bellhousing for each year and model car are very important to be correct.

I trust that this will assist you in finding your answer.
