Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

It mounts with it bowed out towards the transmission. When installed incorrectly it will rub and or the converter will not seat up against it flush. It can only go one way.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

I don't really understand what you mean because someone else put it in , What I see is the ring gear is more flush or flat to the tORQUE CONVERTER SIDE The engine side The flex plate is More inside , Like if it were a bowl would hold water , What I do Know is the engine Binds up when I tighten it , I took the bolts back out , The engine turns but the center of the torque converter seems to be stuck inside the Crank , Like a Pilot hole . And I can't free the torque converter from the crank now .

What is your first name and I will complete the call you asked for.

Chris
