Thanked 36 Times in 36 Posts problem,happens to the best of us....As far as the spacer thing..if you are going to space it back to break in the motor,then unbolt the trans again to remove the spacers,whats the purpose of even having the trans there in the first place? Why not just leave it on the floor until the motor is all squared away,then put the trans in? Even with the spacers,there is no guarantee that the TC won't walk out of the trans that little bit while the motor is running.When we disconnect a TC from the motor to isolate a vibration issue,1 person has to be under the car with a large screwdriver to hold the TC into the trans to prevent it from doing this while the motor is running,or sure enough,it will work its way back towards the flywheel.And our run time is only a matter of seconds.
