I have to think that you can get a new flex plate to fit a power glide. What engine do you have?

Prior to 1954, the 235 and 216 cubic inch six cylinder

Check a Hollander's and see what all years are interchangeable. I would think that with the number of Chev I-6 engines out there, you would have NO problem getting an flex plate for it. Check Whitney, too. For that matter, check with LMC. The Chevy pick up 6 should use the same one, and they may well have it!
