Hey yummy,
How about adding your results to this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=22&t=38816

Usually, a flex plate is used on an automatic transmission.

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

if it's a manual transmission, it will have a flywheel (with ring gear,) a pilot bearing in the center of the flywheel, a clutch friction disc, a pressure plate, and a throw out bearing.

the automatic will have a flex plate (with ring gear,) and a torque converter that bolts to the flex plate.

sometimes i find the transmission output seals for the axles locally at autozone and sometimes i get them from rockauto.interweb.

Ya cool I really never put much thought into it pressure plate flex plate any how I tried to get the seals from rock they sent me the wrong ones.I spent 2 hrs running around town I finally got them from Westbay auto. It would have not been a big deal but my dad took one seal out and realized the new one was to big it was hard to see when it the old one was in but it was obvious when he took it out. Such is life this kind of stuff happens.it took us a little over 2 hrs to take out the transmission and I think we could have had it done in 4 hrs if we did not have the seal problem.
