covertor

I put some fluid in the convertor for lubrication. A little vaseline on the neck for seal lubrication. I install the convertor with the two cuts in the neck aimed out to the sides. Not up and down. They can dig into the bearing and score it. I wiggle the convertor into place. Then I spin it until I hear it lock 3 times. Each time it clicks it should move into the tranny a little further. When it spins without going any further in tranny it's set into place. When you bolt tranny to the motor make sure you have about 3/8" clearance between convertor and ring gear. Bolt it to ring gear.

follow what bracketeer says...

there may be less than 3/8 space between the converter & flexplate when both are bolted together.

the converter MUST spin freely as you bolt the tranny to the engine. IF it binds up, pull the tranny back to check the converter install into the tranny !
