                Torque Converter Installation Tips




Clean the crankshaft pilot hole.  Look for wear.  Check for motion side-to-side and up-and-down.

Always install 4 to 6 ounces of fluid in the torque converter before installation.  Dry start-up can damage bearings, bushings, thrust washers, clutches and other internal components of the converter.

Always inspect the dowel pins in the engine and the dowel pin holes in the transmission case. Make sure all electrical ground straps are properly connected.

Never use an impact gun to install torque converter bolts.  Driving a bolt into the converter cover will create a dimple on the lockup apply surface. 

Lockup clutch failure will occur when the lockup piston applies against an uneven surface.  Grinding off one thread length from all lockup converter bolts is recommended to avert this type of failure.

Push the converter into the transmission and measure the distance between the flex-plate and the mounting pad of the converter. 

This distance should be at least 1/8" and not more than 1/4".  Install shims between the mounting pads and flex-plate if necessary to achieve the correct measurement.

Caution:  Make sure that the converter pilot has not been pulled out of the crankshaft with excessive shims.
