Engine and trans ready for car

"Moment of truth" is getting closer. Today engine and transmission were bolted together. The torque converter should not be "pressed" on the flexplate (will probably eat up thrust bearings if done). After gearbox and engine were bolted together the torque converter and flexplate were bolted. Before bolting flexplate and converter I had to slide the converter about 10 mm against flexplate. Important to use correct torque on both bellhouse and flexplate bolts. Engine going back into car after easter.

The flexplate (TCI flexplate for internal balanced engines) was bolted on crank. The engine was supported on the engine mounts and block.
