So I’m getting ready to drop my motor in..figured I should get a new flex plate. I only see one listed on rock auto.

Outer diameter is 15.68”

Is that the right size?

I don't believe that there's any new flex plates being sold for the Factory Turbo engine. The only one listed will probably be for a N/A engine.

Wow, so what do people do? I have two motors and so two flex plates. One isn’t dead flat (wobbles while idles) and the one in the truck would miss and grind the plate every once in a while.

What is the difference and does it matter? My thinking is if the 7.3 Idi and 7.3 idit motors are interchangeable shouldn’t the flex plate?

I know you guys know more about these trucks but it never hurts to ask.

I may be able to help. I have a 94 factory turbo idi I bought from a junkyard to put in my truck and it had a newer flywheel on it when I got it. I have a zf5 so it’s no use to me. I don’t know if it is correct, it looks good/ pretty new. I was told the truck was totaled in a wreck, main thing I know is it was a really half ass rebuild with cheap parts and the turbo wasn’t gone over, no machine shop work. So I’d be skeptical it is right.
