Paging Bruce and Keith Sherry.

What flexplate did you use with that converter I bought from you at the Bash last year? Wasn't it the PA one you gave me?

I want to make sure I don't get in a bind with converter clearance.

Thanks.

John

John,

Yup, the flexplate and converter were used with a PA C-4 to our 572. The flexplate is brand new and never bolted to the converter. It was a replacement for a PA flexplate that cracked; but it was a PA flexplate and that converter used with a PA C-4.

In our C-4 setup, we used 1/4" spacers between the converter and flexplate to align the starter and the converter into crank pilot.

Yours may be a little different?

Bruce

Yes that was the one. We didn't use it because we went with a JW wheel. PA had sent that wheel to replace the one that come apart on us. Getting close to bolting that car up or what??

Thanks guys,

I'm either going to grind that weight off the plate you gave me or buy another one. I just want to avoid any converter engagement problems as soon as I can.

I just got home from a long project (4 months away) for work so now I should have some time in the evenings to wrench on it. I've got a long way to go, but I'm going to give it a max effort to try and make it in June. If I don't bring a car it won't be for a lack of trying!
