Hi guys,
Do any of you have a CAD drawing file of a C4 block plate (its a large bell case fill)? Or dimensions of all the relevant mounting holes? I need some accurate dimensions to cut out a mid plate for my car (more accurate than measuring the scabby bent up spare block plate I have)....
Also, is having a 1/8" block plate (the std block plate is around 1/16") going to affect the converter at all, ie how deep it's installed, or is that little of a change not going to worry it?

Thanks heaps,

Nathan

usually you can vary a 1/16 or so as far as pump depth. when you put it together, check the engagement of the converter snout into the crank. it should go in at least 1/16-1/8"

so the answer is yes, it can affect things, but probably wont. just check it out. also bottom out the converter & bring it back out .100-.180. anything else could cause problems.
