Trans to motor

Hi guys,
I,m about to bolt my C10 to my 351C, I know this is a silly question but why does the four pins on the convertor have a thread? And do I simply slip the convetor onto the sharft and then load this onto the fly wheel?
Is it this simple?

Any help will do?
Thanks

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.

Re: Trans to motor

and make sure u have the spigot bush out of the crank, that sure slowed down me getting my c10 bolted up properly.

Thanks!!! But what is a sandwhich plate? And where do I purchase one? and the nuts that you said to go on the convetor do they go on afterwards or do they act as a spacer?

Re: Trans to motor

Yes,bolt convertor to flywheel once tranny is bolted to motor.Turn the crank to access each stud and torque to specs.
