INSTALLATION OF TORQUE
a. Connect the torque converter to the drive
plate and torque capscrews to 15 ft.-lbs. (2.07
b. Adjust converter runout to .020 inch (.508
a. Attach a dial indicator to the converter
housing with its point resting on the impeller
hub (pump drive sleeve).
b. Rotate the engine one full turn. The
indicator should register not more than .020
c . If the indicator variation is substantially
m o r e than .020 inch (508 mm), remove the
