5.0 Flexplates

I have run into a little trouble in the build on my motor and I was hoping there were some people out there who hold the answers. Is the Australian Flexplate 164 tooth or 157 tooth and does it use the 50oz counterweight. I need to buy one for the motor I am building for my Fairlane as the long motor didn't come with it btw Ford want over $250 DEALER PRICE for one....
any help would be greatly appreciated.

2. If you throw it up in the air and it comes down - It's too heavy...

Squeezed is nice, stroked is good, blown is unbeliveable - but all 3 is heaven

Re: 5.0 Flexplates

Well it would be the same for auto's since they both share the same starter motor
