To mate a 360 up to the nailhead I assure you it's needed. If you bolt it all up w/o it, the flexplate will be about 3/4in away from the torque convertor, so a person would be inclined to pull the convertor out to the flexplate, disengaging it from the oil pump. I cut one of the spacers down to mate my 401 w/o a hole in the crank to my late model tranny, had to space the bellhousing as well. At any rate they exist and were used on these. The only thing I'm not sure about is wether they were on the Buick set up or not. J20
Ok I Kinda figured it would have to be the AMC 360 thing. Buick does not have the spacer, and nor does the AMC 327 if I remember correctly. I have a 360 and Nailhead trany in a 72 but it is still in it I have never pulled it, yet. When I do I guess I will be sure to pull the spacer.
