hey everyone


I just removed the tranny from my old engine and want to put it on my new engine, but first how do I remove the torque converter, and second how do I do the timing on my new engine.

I know that you have to match the lines on the gears where the timing belt goes but how do you turn the gears?

i replaced the timing belt and tensioner already..


thanks for your help...

auto trans huh?


let me consult my factory manual over the weekend to see......or if you get impatient, go check out the library or an online source for the manual

that is unless some auto trans guru pops up and shares his wisdom

the torque converter bolts onto the fly wheel... so just undo the bolts and pull her off, its full of tranny fluid so be carefull. and for the timing borrow a timing light or buy one and find somone who's done it before because its late and im far too lazy to explain.

If you have turned the camshaft when replacing the timing belt, you have a bit of a problem, because for each revolution of the crankshaft, the camshaft revolves 2x I don't know how to set this up right once it's messed up, some advice though, don't try to crank or start the engine if this is messed up, or you'll end up with bent valves.

Get yourself a bentley and a Haynes manual. They both lack but one seems to pick up the pieces of the other.

On the timing belt. If the cam shaft gear is lined up with the mark on the head, your good there. And you want the "OT" mark on the harmonic balancer to line up with the line on the small lower timing belt cover. If those are lined up and the belt is on with the tensioner all you need to do is tighten the bolts and install.

I don't know jack about the BMW autos. sorry. This applies if we are talking about a 325E.

Finally pulled the M50 from the donor car.
