My bottom drivers side bellhousing broke while torquing it down. The trans appears flat. Any thoughts on what could cause it? I may get the car running before replacing. Many issues have happened. All tranny/ flexplate/starter related
It was tough lining it up, it was maybe 1/16 of an inch from the block becaus it keep leaning back some, but essentially no. I do have mid motorplates. BeforeI buy a new bell Ill replace the dowels....I do you think maybe a dowel caught just a little? I'm wondering if a reweld is cost effective? I'm tired of pulling everything in and out
Greg, another question. All of the problems i have had come from this tranny. 1st a spacing issue with the converter, then a pawl, next starter/fp issues. Do you think I could have a warped main body or just bad luck with it?
No, I didn't realize they sold longer ones. It does appear the dowel caught, better lighting now and I see a very small gap there, but any gap would do. Do you recommend welding while attached to an engine block? Seems it would be flatter.
