Ok so we are putting the stroker back in the car today and man,she sure seems tight trying to bolt it together....We pull it out move stuff around,boy those pins just arent right ....
So we pull the motor back out thinking maybe it was put on backwards ...NOPE! So we fiddle around with the converter it feels seated,but maybe not... we dont know whats going on... We take some measurements from the face of the tranny to the converter,then from the motor to the mounting tab on it also .... UH OH Motor to flywheel is .875... trans housing to Converter is .375 deep thats .5 minimum to shallow to accept the flywheel....HELP.....

spin it slowly and you should feel it click into place and lock. it will fall in about a 1/4 inch almost.
did you pre-oil it a bit?

Cam has a good thread on the TC convertor, just do a search....the TC needs to be 3/4 to an inch back from face of tranny (check the write up) and it takes like three clicks for it to seat correctly...What crank do you have? I assume you have the TC bushing installed in the rear of the crank to properly seat the TC, needed for stroker crank? Just some things to check, good luck and call your builder as they are always helpful and have seen the problems a hundred times over....I am sure the experts here will chime in if ya give more details...

TC bushing for a stroker hmm Ive got know Idea what you are talking about(someone tell me more)?We deff, have two clicks/clunks on it I just dont think we are hitting those keys
Pre-install the converter in the end of the crank to check for a nice tight fit.
Make damn sure there is no paint on the trans. side of the torque converter.
Check the converter snout for burrs or dings it must me perfectly polished or it will pull the oil pump bushing out of the trans.
Lube up the snout with trans. assy grease, you don't want it dry.
Install the converter 3 full clicks, it must be 3/4-1" back from the front of the trans.
yea the converter has been in the car before how the hell do I get that third click???Ill check the snout for fit in the crank If I need a bushing where do I get one?
When Madmanadam, myself, and Slim did his Torque Converter, Slim made about 8-10 tries turning before he got that 3rd click. I think Cam said it might take 1-100 tries, just have to feel it. We kept checking with a ruler to be sure we were at that 1" in. One time Slim "thought" he got the 3rd click, but the ruler said no-so he went back at it and finaly got it. The ruler doesn't lie.
