Re: question from a dummy

The thing next to the flux capacitor. Just kiddin'.
I have know idea what a torque plate is. Is there such a thing?
That's the question I'm asking. Anyone? If I had to guess it would be related to the clutch somehow. But this is for my own personal trivia only. Do not use this reply for info.

Re: question from a dummy

I believe the "flex plate" takes the place of a flywheel in cars with automatic transmissions. The "torque converter" bolts to it. Is that what you're thinking about?

Re: question from a dummy

At work, it is a plate that distributes the torque and load evenaly (theoreticaly) accross a surface it attaches to. It can also be used to protect the surface of the part under it.

Re: question from a dummy

I believe it replaces the flywheel in auto's, I believe it's also called a flex plate sometimes.

Re: question from a dummy

Some torque plates are used in engine shops to bore blocks. It simulates the stress of the head being on the block for a more acurate bore while the block is in its normal stress situation.

Re: question from a dummy

Yep, doug is mighty proud of that plate, justifiably.
