some people get lucky that way, not me! the plate affects the depth of engagement of the starter and the torque convertor. if you are lucky you will only chew up starters. if you are like me you will break the front pump in the transmission. there is a tolerance built into the torque convertor clearance but if everything happens to be on the high side the crank will force the torque convertor too deep into the pump and crack it. hawkrod
