Something is out of balance

02 F-350 Sd 7.3 Dually, 28,000 miles (I don't drive it much only for the RV or Hay loads)

I was driving along, parked, came back out and started it, thats when I noticed the engine had a lunge to it, and seems out of balance, You can feel it when its at a higher speed, headed home, heard metal clinking,(dark outside so I could not see anything) When I got home I see nothing missing or leaking,

I had a tranny swap done last spring at 26,000 miles with a new ATS which has helped my heavy towing, I wounder if there is something with the torque convertor thats gone wrong and thats where I'm hearing the metal clinking and getting the out of balance? Thanks in advance for any chimes in on this.


Anyone here from ATS Dielsel?

I thought I would post what I found out. The flex plate lost its balance weight, the welds broke.

Lucky for me it happened after I parked it and not while driving down the highway or trying to show off, that could of meant disaster! or embarassment
