I still have my old 545 with deep pan in my garage. I can pull it off if you want it, I don't think I hurt it doing the take off.
I made new trans lines with braided steel #10 AN. It's rated to over 1000 psi. Ordered what I needed from summit and grainger . They are 37 degree flare at the hose and 10 O ring boss into the 545.

i measured both transmissions from the bell house to the end of the adapter plate.

the 1545 is about 1/2" - 9/16ths longer with the adapter.

so now measure from a straightedge across the engine flange down to the flexplate.. and to the edge of the torque converter hub (on the engine)..

torque converters have room to push and pull.. .. and again make sure that the converter is fully seated on the 1545.. a couple revolutions and jiggling a bit to be sure..

also should mention when you are doing your measurements to the converter from bell (on the transmissions)... to top and bottom and take an average.,. the converter can sag down when the trans sitting on the ground and not piloted.

it seems about an inch off.






i would be tempted to go without the ring, but the hole won't line up to the flexplate. i think i need like a 1/4" adapter.

idk

the specs from this book, clearly say it sticks out an inch more.

http://www.waghornswood.net.nz/Manua...nsmissions.pdf

check out section 3-2, page 17

and page 26, table 4-1

what do i do?


not that it shows any measurements, but this looks like what i need.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Cummins-...3D182506765559

or i could mark and drill the flexplate for the new holes

That looks like it would work. Same part, but this guy has a phone # you could call to verify measurements New Cummins Adapter Plate MPN #3916223 Ford #F3HZ-6A369-B | eBay . If I have time later today, I'll look that up and see what the original usage was, and see if there are any prints for it.

Have you measured the pilot on the torque converter and compared that to the hole in the crank/flywheel? That's another area to check for fitment

sure looks like the ticket.. I never read the SPEC sheets on these.. I spent all my time reading up on the 1000 specs..
this is good info.. the only other method i could think of was a spacer against the SAE3 housing on the engine..

I like the idea of that ring better if it will fit.. make sure the bolt heads wont ineterfere.

the original torque converter measures 41mm from the backplate. and adapter measures another 41mm, giving me a total of 82mm that fit prior.

the new torque converter measures 69mm from the backplate. so to get the same distance as before.... i need a spacer thats about 12-13 mm (1/2").

i messaged the seller on the one i linked to on ebay and he replied back that that spacer is about 1/4" (6mm) thick.

i'll go back and figure exactly what my tolerance is. i think im short now by about a 1/4" if i get that ford torque adapter.

1/4" spacers?
cut the ring off the one i have now + the ford adapter?

still scratching my head

Dave

edit - the range of tolerance looks like between 81mm total - 85mm total.
I'm at 69mm with the converter, 75mm with the ford adapter. 110mm like it is now.

theres normally quite a bit of room.. when you pull a transmission out you often shove the converter back off the pilot by a 1/4 to 1/2 inch.. I know that in my case with my 1000 that there was at least a 1/4 to 3/8 inch of play.. as my adapter ring has studs on it (with nuts for the engine side).. when I installed the 1000 I only had a few threads stuck through and rotated my ewngine around 3X total to draw it in and properly tighten it..

so you SHOULD be 1/4 short or so.. if you look at the difference on old AT545 original and actual depth from bolt boss on ring to flexplate hole you'll likely find a little room there...
