You will probably have to drill and tap the hole. Before you do this ... consider a helicoil repair.

What type of Flywheel do I need for a 1994 GMC Sierra SL 1500 automatic 4.3l V6 305?

It's not a flywheel, it's a flex plate that bolts to back of engine. Why do you need one? If your starter is grinding it needs a starter drive (bendix)

Starter Problem

if you drop the trans. dust cover on the bottom of the bell housing you should dee your fly wheel. Place your starter in the position and line up the shims (if needed) . adjust the starter in enough to where it clears the torque converter and shim outward if needed

I have a 94 gmc 2500 and replaced the battery , the battery cable the starter and the alternator the battery is fully charged and all i get is a clicking noise with no fire

Clicking Would Be The Starter Not Working Properly It Should Spin And Then Engage. It Works Up It Speed And Then Comes Forward If Its Just Clicking It Has Hung Up On Something. Id Suggest Trying To Unjam The Starter By Either Removing It Or Tapping It With A Hammer.
