TRANSMISSION REPAIR (Continued).
Install the same spacer (58) removed,
only if the end play reading taken
before disassembly was satisfactory,
and if no parts affecting end play are
being replaced. Install the spacer into
the hub of converter turbine (59).
(j) Install bearing race (57), outer lip upward,
into hub of turbine assembly (59). Grease
(Appendix D ,Item 21) and install bearing
(56) onto the bearing race (57).
k) Install sealring (55) onto lockup clutch
backplate (53). Install the backplate onto
the torque converter pump. Align the
balance mark on the backplate with the
balance mark on the converter pump.
(l) Install lockup clutch plate (52) to plate
(m) If the converter cover bushing (51) in the
converter hub was removed, use bushing
installer to install a new bushing (5 1). After
installation, the bushing inside diameter
should be 0.9990-1.0010 inch (25.375-
(n) Install sealring retainer (48) , smaller end
first, onto converter cover hub (44). Install
sealring (49) into the retainer. Install
sealring (50) onto piston (46).
The lockup clutch will not release if the
piston is not engaged with the piston
To make installation of the lockup
piston easier, place a pencil mark in
line with the pin nearest the orifice in
the piston. Then, when the piston is
installed, use the pencil mark as a
guide for the location of the pin
beneath the orifice. One recessed hole
is concentric with the orifice. Rotate the
piston slightly, if necessary, during
installation to ensure that the piston
engages the pins. To verify that the
piston is seated, measure the distance
from the pump cover mounting surface
to the piston. This is approximately 1-
1/2 inches (38 mm).
(o) Install the lockup clutch piston (46) into the
converter cover (44) with the balance
marks aligned so that the piston guide pins
will enter the nearest holes in the piston.
(p) Using hand pressure on the center of
piston (46),install snapring (47). Install
bearing race (45) inner lip first, into the hub
of converter cover (44). Use grease
(Appendix D, Item 2 1) to retain it.
(q) Install, as a unit, the converter cover,
lockup clutch piston and related parts.
Align the balance marks on the cover with
the balance marks on the lockup clutch
backplate and the converter pump. Secure
the converter cover with twenty-four nuts
(43). Torque the nuts evenly to 19-23 ft-lb
(r) Install six rubber ID retainers (42) onto
each of the six drive studs on the converter
The end play check is necessary if
spacer was not installed at buildup. The
check is recommended even if spacer
(58) was installed, to verify that proper
end play 0.001-0.025 inch (0.03-0.64
mm) remains after rebuild. Omit if the
end play reading is satisfactory.
