    27. To remove torque converter, carefully slide torque converter out of the transmission.

    1. Check torque converter hub and hub drive notches for sharp edges burrs, scratches, or nicks. Polish the hub and notches with 320/400 grit paper and crocus cloth if necessary. The hub must be smooth to avoid damaging pump seal at installation.
    2. Lubricate converter drive hub and oil pump seal lip with transmission fluid.
    3. Lubricate converter pilot hub with transmission fluid.
    4. Align converter and oil pump.
    5. Carefully insert converter in oil pump. Then rotate converter back and forth until fully seated in pump gears.
    6. Check converter seating with steel scale and straightedge Surface of converter lugs should be 1/2 in. to rear of straightedge when converter is fully seated.
    7. Temporarily secure converter with C-clamp
    8. Position transmission on jack and secure it with chains.
    9. Check condition of converter driveplate. Replace the plate if cracked, distorted or damaged. Also be sure transmission dowel pins are seated in engine block and protrude far enough to hold transmission in alignment.
    10. Raise transmission and align converter with drive plate and converter housing with engine block.
    11. Move transmission forward. Then raise, lower or tilt transmission to align converter housing with engine block dowels.
