Engine - refitting (automatic transmission in vehicle)

1 Reverse the procedure described in Section 9, 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 “A” 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. 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-to-transmission bolts.

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

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

7 Fill the cooling system.

8 Check and if necessary adjust the tension of the alternator drivebelt.

9 Adjust the throttle cable.

10 If applicable, adjust the kickdown cable.
