    Earlier in the week, I Spoke With joe at Westminster. Unless I can get someone to tap the stripped threads, I’ll probably need to order a new TC from Rock auto.

    Torque converter to flex plate hole alignment

    luckily I was Able to return the torque converter to Autozone. Unfortunately, that is the only type/version they have that I could order. I am surprised that NAPA auto parts was not able to secure me one when I originally looked. Is there anywhere else where I can find a new torque converter...

    Torque converter to flex plate hole alignment

    Yep, just did that very comparison. The new TC is incorrect. Grrr. I should have lined the holes up before putting in ATF+4. I wonder if AutoZone will take it back.

    Torque converter to flex plate hole alignment

    Thanks. Well either the replacement TC or flexplate is incorrect. The holes aren’t matching up. I matched up the old flex plate against the new TC and though the holes are worn oblong (the entire purpose of this undertaking,) it’s difficult to discern if they’re off alignment as well. Damn

    Torque converter to flex plate hole alignment

    1999 Wrangler 4.0L 32RH auto transmission. Is there a specific orientation for the holes on the torque converter to align with the flexplate? there is a symbol on the TC at one hole, yet I don't see any such indicator on the flexplate. I measure the TC holes, center-to-center and they appear...

    1999 TJ has a fluttering / clacking sound in drive and sometimes in park

    Okay, the new bunt cake torque converter is installed! I've a few questions: I've seen a video stating I'll need to grease the hub (see pic.) Do you all recommend I apply grease? Also, the symbol aligns to what on the flexplate? Thanks in advance, Guys.

    How to remove flexplate mounting bolts

    Exactly as you describe. Thanks! ~ Are there any good videos or threads detailing installing the new torque converter? There are several videos I have located, yet none for a TJ Wrangler. Is the procedure pretty standard (partial fill of the TC with ATF and some of the ATF on the spline?) I'm...

    How to remove flexplate mounting bolts

    Everything on the new flexplate looks similar to the vehicle's original except for the absence of these holes. Are the holes a type of weight reduction for balance? Should I be concerned? Also, does the flexplate have to go on in a certain orientation (note the original also has a splotch of...

    How to remove flexplate mounting bolts

    I've referenced the stickied threads for torque specs and done online searches, but am coming up empty on the specifications for the six bolts mounting the flexplate to the engine. Where is the information located? Thanks! Edit: I've found this information from 2008 on a Jeepforum: 105 ft-lbs...

    How to remove flexplate mounting bolts

    I have tried that, but the screwdriver was up against the side of the oil pan...? and had absolutely no leverage. I'll try again. Thanks

    How to remove flexplate mounting bolts

    Thanks! Still can't get the screwdriver to do that ,(and I don't want to damage threads in those holes, yeah?) but I'll go back and look again, especially on the starter side. Thank you
