    Ok. My fear was not being able to re-install once I take it off. From the comments the visual I have in my head is way off.

    You are not , " Taking it off " . You are removing 3 bolts that attach the converter to the flex plate and moving it towards the transmission about 1/2 to 1 inch .

    66electrafied Just tossing in my nickel's worth

    Definitely would mark the flywheel and converter with a grease pencil, that way it lines up right and is in reasonable balance again.

    You should inform the new owner of this thread and maybe we can still get satisfaction...

    Good luck.
