    You need to be able to properly set the gap between the flexplate and the torque converter. I would seriously recommend getting a manufacturer's manual (NOT Chilton or Haynes) to get it done right. This is the kind of job that can easily go from 3.5 shop hours to 10 or 12 with lots and lots of additional parts.
