The 10 and 11 inch clutches only have 6 bolt holes. I would use the largest
clutch the flywheel has a surface for. Stay away from rebuilt pressure plates.
Mine was trash, as in out of balance. When I couldn't find a new one for the 235
application I bought one for a small block, it bolts right on. You will need the
proper through out bearing for the cast rather than stamped arm.
