i have a transmission question, i just bought a 78 camaro with a 350 engine and th350 tranny and i am wondering how the torque converter bolts to the flex plate seeing as both are out of the car and im going to be putting them back in as a single unit
The Converter needs to be installed into the trans first. You will need to rotate the converter & gently push, should feel/hear 3 clicks. This will be the Turbine splines engaging the trans Input shaft, Stator Support splines engaging the Stator and the Impeller Pump Hub splines engaging the Pump lugs. After you bolt the trans to engine you should have to slide the Converter towards the Flexplate, should be about 1/8" to 3/16" gap between them. If not the Converter is not installed correctly. should be 3 Bolts & Nuts to install Converter to Flexplate + Blue Locktite on threads. Some Converters use Bolts & have threaded lugs welded to the Converter for mounting.
