  • Rotate the crankshaft so that the alignment hole (A) of drive plate aligns with the position of the torque converter alignment stud bolt.

    CAUTION:

  • Rotate the crankshaft clockwise (as viewed from the front of the engine).
  • Be careful that torque converter stud bolts are aligned to the drive plate holes. Otherwise the stud bolts contact the drive plate.
  • Insert the alignment stud bolt of torque converter into the alignment hole of the drive plate, aligning the drive plate holes with the torque converter stud bolts.

    CAUTION: Be careful not to strike the drive plate with the torque converter stud bolts.

  • When installing the torque converter nuts, temporarily tighten the nuts. Then, after installing the engine and transaxle assembly bolts tighten the nuts to the specified torque.

INSTALLATION

Tightening torque : 51 N*m (5.2 kg-m, 38 ft-lb)

CAUTION:

  • Rotate the crankshaft clockwise (as viewed from the front of the engine).
