d. Disconnect fluid lines, temperature and pressure gage probes, and linkage to clutch operating shaft.
e. Remove 12 capscrews mating converter to engine flywheel housing.
f. Remove six bolts, nuts and lockwashers from chain drive support plate.
g. The converter may now be moved to rear until converter input shaft will clear clutch sliding sleeve.
h. Remove converter from engine.
The clutch mechanism will still be attached to flywheel. If maintenance is to be performed on the
clutch or flywheel remove clutch at this time (para 5-84).
i. Clean the exterior of torque converter with a suitable solvent.
If torque converter does not require maintenance, do not disassemble. See paragraph 5-84 for
partial disassembly for clutch repair.
5-83 Torque converter installation
a. Using a dial indicator, take readings on flywheel and flywheel housings.
Corrective steps must be taken if these readings are not within tolerances listed in Table 1-1.
b. Attach a dial indicator to engine block. Arrange indicator so its anvil rests on engine flywheel housing. You will
then be able to measure amount of sag in housing after attaching converter.
c. Attach rear support plate to converter before mounting converter to engine.
d. Using a suitable hoist, move converter to engine flywheel housing, guiding input shaft into clutch plate hub.
e. After bolting converter to flywheel housing, place a jack under converter housing and raise until indicator at
engine flywheel housing again reads zero. A zero indication will show that there is no longer any deflection in housing.
f. With hydraulic jack still supporting converter, install bolts that mate support plate and engine subframe. Torque
these bolts to standard values from Table 1-3.
g. Connect clutch linkage to clutch shaft.
