    I wish I would’ve seen this thread earlier. Lockup converters can be a real PITA

    I would recommend to everyone to have some 3-4” bolts with the proper thread installed in their converter at 9/3 o’clock
    Lift and spin by the bolts themselves. Works great.

    Also the “3 clicks” method is false.
    Always measure the the original gap from the converter pad to the trans bell for proper comparison to know it’s seated in the pump correctly.

    Thanks Nate. This is exactly what I did. I measured from the back of the block to the edge of the flexplate to give me a close estimate of how far back the torque converter needed to go. I also still have my old trans in the corner of the garage with the torque converter in it and used that is a reference point also.

    the trick i learned from working at a trans shop is to put your hands at 10 and 2 oclock on the bellhousing, then use your thumbs to push up and spin at the same time. it never fails for me
