Engine - refitting (automatic transmission in vehicle)

1 Reverse the procedure described in Section 10, noting the following points: 2 Check that the engine adapter plate is correctly positioned on its locating dowels.

3 As the torque converter is only loosely engaged in the transmission, care must be taken to prevent the torque converter from falling out forwards. When the torque converter hub is fully engaged with the fluid pump drivegear in the transmission, distance УAФ in illustration 2.24 of Chapter 7B must be as specified. Incorrect installation of the torque converter will result in damage to the transmission.

4 As the engine is installed, guide the torque converter studs through the holes in the driveplate, noting that on the C3 type transmission, the torque converter fluid drain plug must line up with the opening in the driveplate (see illustration 2.25 in Chapter 7B).

When the engine is positioned flush with the engine adapter plate and the transmission housing, check that the torque converter is free to move axially a small amount before refitting and tightening the engine-totransmission bolts.

5 Do not tighten the torque converter-todriveplate nuts until the lower engine-totransmission bolts have been fitted and tightened.

6 Refit the exhaust downpipe.

7 Fill the engine with the correct grade and quantity of oil.

8 Fill the cooling system.

9 Check and if necessary adjust the tension of the alternator and where applicable the power steering pump drivebelt(s).

10 Adjust the throttle cable.

11 Where applicable, adjust the kickdown cable.
