...yah I ran into the 'WTM-FH!!! - the f--king heads have to come off to get the f--king lifters out??!!!' 馃が馃が馃が馃が - problem too. Would have had to severely distort/rip the head gaskets to get them out...or in. Fortunately I only had one head bolted on before I remembered this little factoid from when I was pulling the heads off.

Looking good Joel 馃憤

not sure I'm following Joel. You're saying the converter is simply not 'seating' completely to the flexplate?, and if removing some from the converter snout will allow the converter to fully seat? Or when all bolted up tight the converter is not seated far enough into the flexplate/crank pilot hole? That may simply be an '8HP' thing...but why would it have manifest with the 727...with a totally different converter?

You have a 'new' stroker crankshaft right...so the 727 'problem' should not have transferred to the stroker...?

...I'm sorry could you please repeat the question? o_O :ROFLMAO:

if it is out of square...you could machine the tranny instead of pulling the engine back apart. Not sure that's really any better but maybe. Gotta be something else tho right - that'd be pretty unusual...

...Joel....bro...is it 'too late' to go with a 46RH...? I love what yer doing...but wow this is kinda starting to creep into fairly exotic voodoo territory, and take it from me it's not always as awesome as it first appears :confused: . A 5-speed is still pretty good and the stroker won't know the difference, and the final OD ratio is almost the same so your cruise rpm would be about a wash between the two, no? Maybe ponder how many 'issues' a 46RH solve?

I've never needed or wanted the ability to lock a converter in low range - IMO there is plenty of trans/engine braking available in any low-stall converter - I don't think you'll ever have any issues with that.
