Well, I'm doing a little dremel work on the crank. I'll let you know how that works. I've also noticed that the hole in the crank goes in 3/4" and the knob on the converter goes out 3/4" so even if I do get this to work the two parts may still be butted up against one another when tightened. All the tranny fluid in the converter is now gone onto the floor as well. Should I put more fluid in the converter, or when (or if) i get this together will it just be fine to add the fluid normally?
