there is ne trick ,you just start all three bolts before you tighten any.there is generally one round hole and 2 elongated ones in the flywheel start the round hole first.if you just put one in and tighten it you most times cant get the others started

Not really any tricks,there are several mounting holes,in most flex plates spin it until they line up, should be 3 Holes that line up .:beer::texas:

I leave them loose and after all 3 are in torque them down,, not slopply loose, finger tight so the converter can move around a tad,, Matty man

Put a socket on the balancer nut, maybe, and use a breaker bar on it? Works best without spark plugs in!

There is a special tool for turning the flex plate. But if you put the transmission in neutral, it shouldn't be hard to turn the torque converter.

You can but a long flat blade screwdriver or a flywheel turning tool works great,, the problem with bumping is your either to short or two long of a bump,, the screw driver works fine for me,, Matty man
