I gotta tell you it is a pain sorting through all the internet opinions while trying to find factual info. This is why I joined the FTE site. It has been a great source for fact based knowledge. Thanks again!
I'm pretty sure the AOD was used till about 91 or so because mine is an 89 model. Yeah definitly get the lokar cable setup for your carb. Your flexplate is a 28oz. I think you can just buy an aftermarket flexplate for your AOD with the correct 28oz balance matching your 351
