Ramcharger drive plate locked up
« on: June 04, 2016, 01:18:35 pm »
Hey guys. I'm installing a rebuilt 360 in my 87 ramcharger with a 727 and when I installed the drive plate to the fly wheel the crankshaft won't spin all the way. It spins a good bit but won't fully rotate. It locks up. Could the drive plate be in backwards? All 4 drive plate bolts are in the right spot and I don't see anything protruding to block it. Any ideas?? I'm stumped and about to pull the motor back out and take a look but I figured I'd ask y'all in case I skipped something stupid.

Are you sure a bolt on the flex plate isn't hitting the block. 

Post a few pics.

UPDATE: got it fixed, was getting stopped cus the compression with the spark plugs in the block just made it stop haha. Really simple shit that I overlooked. Got the motor fired up yesterday so all good buttt now having problems getting the power steering brackets in place haha.
