Out of balance Flex plate ?

I've been getting a slight leak out of the bell housing on the e40d trans.After removing the inspection cover(small tin cover at front of tranny) . The torque converter is tight to the flexplate , but when I start the engine and watch them spin it looks to be running untrue (slight wobbling effect) I dont think this is normal . Just wondering if anyone has seen this problem before ?

Fill out your sig so we know what you have....

You may have a broken flex plate but that usually doesn't happen unless your up there in HP....

It's normal and it's not causing your leak and it's supposed to be tight.
