Im not to good with auto's, better with manuals. I would help, but i less experiance with autos then manuals. I would imagine that you would just put it on the input shaft of the tranny before the flexplate.

I would help but I have no clue what I am doing. I could be there for an extra hand or I could sit there and drink beer while watching, haha. I am probably going to be getting some PS LT's soon and will need some help with those since I have never done anything like it before. Let me know if you need an extra mechanically challenged hand.

Just like doing a stick but easier. Unbolt it from the flywheel slid e the conveter back into the pump. remove the trans. the converter just slips off and you slide on the newyou will have to turn the new until it drops into its place.

So its kinda like replacing a new clutch then? having to line everything up and turn the input untill it goes. I can pull a manual tranny in a matter of hours, if its similar then the auto shouldnt take to much longer.

I agree. I have met some people from midiowacamaroclub.com but the club isn't what it used to be. I think it would be cool to do what a lot of the Illinois people do from this site. Get together every once in a while and cruise, hangout or whatever.

You meeting the group in Ankeny? That's the only thing that will hold me back is the weather. You bringing the SS or the Z?

Yeah, I'll go to the Ankeny meet. I plan on taking the SS, unless it is nice in the morning & a good chance of rain in the afternoon then I'll take the Z.
