Default Washers for flexplate to torque converter

Hey ya'll,

I don't know what happened to my original post on this though I don't think I got any replies anyhow.

Here's my question:
do I need washers for the flexplate to torque converter bolts?
Just locktite?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Washers for flexplate to torque converter

The bolts used to connect the torque converter to the flex plate do not use any sort of washer. However, I do make that installation using loctite "red" after making certain that the bolt threads and the converter threads are super-clean.
Are yawl ready??? If not here's some training ya might need to prepare:
