    It sounds to me like your flexplate is installed backwards. The humps in the flexplate where the holes for the TC are need to be facing the tranny, not the engine.

    If its wobbling, from a bent (cracked) flexplate, it will wear out the input bushing on your transmission and cause you problems there. Fix it. :crazy:
