Answer 2
You can get them from a used auto parts place (called a junk yard sometimes) near you, call first to save time and gas. another place for budget minded mechanics is in a "U PULLIT" used auto parts yard , if you are lucky enough to live near one. Be sure to inspect it for worn teeth and cracks in the inside areas of the flex plate. Be sure to pre mark the converter studs to the flex plate before reassembly ,as the spacing is different between each stud. good luck! -
