  • Clutch / Torque Converter: Auto trans

    Problem installing auto trans into torque converter 1953 232 Commander. Goes in until the last 1/8 inch, then keeps engine from turning. Followed shop manual procedure, without fixture called out. Suggestions?

    Sounds like a Problem with the fit of the Torque Converter center "Nub" to the Bronze Pilot Bushing in the Crankshaft.

    UPDATE:
    A damaged Pilot Bushing, wrong I.D. etc. This only applies if you were having Converter to Engine issues... NOT.

    I guess I am having trouble getting Standard Transmissions OUT of my head!
    On an Automatic, if the Transmission Front Pump and Input Shafts will not enter the Torque Converter all the way, there are only two possible reasons for that.

    (1) The Trans. Front Oil Pump Drive "Tangs" are not lined up (actually Misaligned) with the Mating ones in the Convertor.

    (2) There is Damage to one or the other.

      What Rich said plus possibly misalignment of the transmission/torque convertor/engine. If you have tried to force the fit, you have likely damaged the pilot bearing/bushing.

        I have the spline alignment tool if you want to borrow it with a deposit.

          I am amazed Bob how you and others Find these Year Old, sometimes Many Years Old Posts, I am pretty sure you didn't search for Trans. not fitting Torque Converter.
