Well when I had this problem my converter I had with the 1.375 would not fit in the crank. I had to order a converter from TCI for it with the 1.250 pilot. TCI was the only place I could find that had a part number for that converter.

Oh and thanks for the exhaust manifolds Carl. At first I was little weary as to if they would fit nicely. Turns out they fit perfectly! Hopefully it sounds good to through my cherry bombs!

Now measure the next step out, closest to the flange/outside edge of the crank.

About 1-7/8? AKA 1.875. Are you sure it's not actually 1.850?

Well I measured with a tape measure from under the car. So I couldnt get that fine of a reading. I'll have to lift the engine out and use a finer instrument to be certain.

Newest photos!! She's sitting in there alright. Solid as a rock with those mounts I fabbed. Have a question of where to put my oil pressure gauge in the engine? Is it the hole in the top back behind the intake?

I was thinking about getting it cut. Would be cheaper than buying a new converter. Thanks dude I love my wagon!! Just want it to go fast!
