I believe a flywheel would be too thick to use with an automatic trans.I know it's not recommended, but if it were mine a good welder could weld it with a high nickle content welding rod. Other than that You could convert to standard trans.

Thanks, think I'll see if I can get it welded. My main concern with that is that it is in two pieces, center @ 5 inches separated from the rim and gear. I've thought about converting but am concerned with the mounting of clutch controls more than anything. Is the frame already punched or scored for the clutch pedal and linkage to same?
