" the front tranny seal before mating it to the engine "

No clue what that is. The two came apart, there is the main "sandwich plate", that goes between the trans and block, and I saw no other "seal". As noted, the converter was not removed, the two were just split to paint the engine. No rebuilds on either.

I have used the stud trick on toploaders, IIRC a few old spare PS pump mounting bolts did the trick there. Same concept.

Thanks for the tips. Especailly on the drain, saw the plugs and thought of it bit whaen looking at the parts. Your mentioning will now hopefully put it into memory for the process...

Now to find those nuts.. in the mess of 4 1/2 cars worth of parts in 3 locations!
