especially during my swap when I thought the flywheels needed replacing too and I basically would've grenaded both motors
That's par for the course for the first time. If you've never done it, how would you know? Biggest thing when attempting something the first time is to ask others any question you have, and don't just assume you know what you're doing.

It makes me cringe knowing somebody somewhere installed a torque converter wrong, started and ran the bus long enough to see no fluid flow, and then didn't remove the trans pump and input shaft to inspect for any damage. I'd bet the farm that there was damage, but what do I know

10-4

I asked a LOT of questions and wasn't afraid to look stupid, and in some cases have to apologize for coming across an arse as I was figuring out things

slow and steady was indeed the key, and some humility

Do you have any pics of the flywheel setup you used for the 643? Trying to do this swap now and can’t seem to find the correct setup
