I think they have changed to that chinese steel..
I didn't see the installation of the convertors, I just see the damage after. I'll have them double check when installing. One of these was five miles and the other had couple hundred.Old Buzzard said:1. The notch in the converter drive hub deep enough to clear the pump drive tangs?
2. The converter was not fully seated, and the tangs got "tangled up" with the slots, and when the trans/block bolts were drawn up,,,
3. The converter was not correctly spaced off of the flexplate?
Just the items I've seen cause this.....
Sounds like you built the trans, and the user put it in???V6RACER said:I didn't see the installation of the convertors, I just see the damage after. I'll have them double check when installing. One of these was five miles and the other had couple hundred.

I had the SAME thing happen. [TWICE!]
I gave the user specific instructions, as to how to properly insert the verter, and how to check the plate clearance... One time it lasted a week, the next, upon installation on the engine.
His bud told me he'd thrown the spacers I gave him, in the trash.....DOH...
Then he got nasty about "warranty"!! Ya, right. :yup: Meet my "little friend".. :gunner:
:6: Per ATI, Min. 1/16", Max. 3/16" distance between converter and flexplate. Had to check because of the thicker flexplate I just installed. :usa:william brophy said:Question: If I remember correctly the space between the flexplate and converter should be 1/8" to 3/16"?
