Torque converter studs/flex plate
Hey guys. Just got done swapping an engine out of an 05 6.0. Got the engine back in, bell housing aligned with the trans, flex plate holes lined up with the torque converter studs. Here's my problem... I have all the bell housing bolts in and tightened and all of the torque converter studs started going through the flex plate holes. But.. here's the problem... The torque converter studs don't come through the flex plate enough for me to get any nuts on them and no matter what I do I can't seem to get them any further in. Has anyone encountered this issue? I've done this about 5 times and have never had this problem. Will I have to pull the trans out, pull the converter, bolt it to the flex plate then reinstall the trans? Or is there a way around this? I have attached a picture of what I mean.
Any help is very much appreciated.
