Is it this simple?
Any help will do?
You must seat the converter properly. Put it in and then turn back and fwd a bit and get it to go all the way home. It should hear it bottom out in the pump gears. Just make sure the converter stays in properly while installing. If it doesnt, it will destroy the box. Put 4 nuts on those converter studs are through the flywheel/flexplate. Dont forget the sandwhich plate!!!
ps, you can test it to see if the converter is ok after installing. Before putting the 4 converter nuts on, grab one the 4 studs with pliers and see if you can move the converter back and fwd a couple of mm. Again, you will hear the converter bottom out in the front pump gears.
