    Okay, so switching out converters on my buddy's camaro. the old torque converter had threaded holes for the bolts to hold the flywheel and converter together. this new one doesn't have threaded holes, just normal ones. What's up? Do we just use a lock washer and nut to hold them together, or is something not right here? I Need a response ASAP!

    Thanks!

    Yep, you got it. My 68 camaro was the same way.

    I started with nothing and I still have most of that left! - <a target="_blank" href=http://www.echobit.com:81/k5/> Pictures</a>

    u can also use nuts with that nylon stuff on them. I would also put some locktight on there too. make sure you use some grade 8 nuts AND bolts.
