     This kit allows you to bolt  Chev auto transmissions to the Dodge Hemi engines.  This kit is designed to utilize the stock Dodge or NAG-1 flexplate and the stock Hemi starter.

  Make sure that your alignment dowel pins are present in your engine. Place bellhousing adapter plate onto your engine over the original dowel pins. Fasten the plate with the enclosed cap screws and bolts to the block.  

  Attach the torque converter adapter onto your stock Chev torque converter using the supplied M10 x 1.5 GM metric converter bolts. Check your threads carefully to make sure you use the correct bolts. With the stock Dodge Hemi flexplate installed, fit the torque converter with adapter bolted to it (not in the transmission at this time) to the crankshaft making sure that with everything in place it can be pushed up to the flexplate with no interference. Now you can install the converter into the transmission (make sure that it is spun into the transmission all the way) and bolt the transmission to the engine. When the transmission is bolted to the engine, the converter must have some free play (approximately 1/8 to 3 1/6 of an inch). If there is no free play, donít continue, find out why. Use loctite on the bolts holding the converter spacer to the flexplate. Use the stock Dodge Hemi starter that came with your engine.
