#4634, "Installation techniques"
Apr-13-10 10:46 PM by Paraquat

          

Hi guys.
My girlfriend just got her first Eclipse. It's been given a total once over and now it's time to drop the engine back in I just had some questions about the tranny.
We looked around for a prothane set but one said manual only. The other one said it was the same for GS/GST/GSX. I looked at a 5 spd Eclipse today but the mounts look the same. I just want to be sure they're the same before I buy mounts I can't use.

My next question is about the torque converter. I did an engine swap in my Blazer one time and I didn't have any output from the transmission afterwards. I brought it to a shop and they said it was because of the something something something.
I don't remember what - I blocked a lot of that truck out of my mind.

I'm just trying to find out now if there's any special techniques to doing it. Preferably something so I don't damage it like I did my Blazer transmission. Fill the tq converter and slap it on the input shaft and bolt it to the flex plate? Anything I should look out for? With any luck it's going in this weekend.
Thanks for any advice.


--Steve

Lol...

Torque converter "drops" some more onto the input shaft and into the bell housing THREE TIMES.

Otherwise you bolt it together, it binds, and then the front pump of the ATX goes out in a week.
