Flexplate to driveplate clearance Rotator


Well-known member
Went to bolt up the gearbox to the LS2 today and the flexplate seems awfully tight against the driveplate bushings. Can't rotate the gear drive when it's tight to the block. I installed a PRW Platinum flexplate that is .156 thick, should be the same spec as OEM as far as depth. Since it's not a torque converter and can't float, I'm wondering if it's just a little too far back. Don't want excess pressure to hammer the thrust bearing. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Tomorrow may pull the PRW and put the OEM back on for comparison.
Nevermind I figured it out. The soft drive bushings are able to move within the drive plate which I had not previously realized.
