Re: AMC 360 Swap

The flex plate for a Torqueflite has one bolt that is off pattern. Meaning not concentric with the other three. This is so a torque convertor on an externaly balanced engine doesen't get installed out of phase. The balance weights are on the convertor for a TF instead of on the flex plate like GM transmissions. The convertor should line up only one way on the flex plate. Hope this helps!
