Bullshit. He clearly described the pump body as something the shaft went through and had a seal around it.
You got a flywheel like that on your Dodge?

Thats great, except he was describing the "pump body to case" bolts.
Those are 15ftlbs, the ones you were talking about are 35ftlbs.
Both a bit shy of the 101ftlbs you mentioned.

No problem... have you made a couple of alignment dowels to get the pump lined up correctly? If not, they're pretty simple to make. Get a length of 5/16"-18 all-thread from your local hardware store. Cut two pieces about 4" long. Screw these into opposite holes where the pump bolts thread into. Now you can slip the gasket and pump onto the alignment dowels, and start the other 5 pump bolts. Unscrew the dowels, and put the final two bolts in, then torque them down.
This is much easier than trying to line things up by hand, hoping not to shift/tear the gasket in the process.

in,
I wish I had thought to mention it previously... startup procedure is important as well. My Torqueflite gurus recommend prefilling the torque converter before installing it. Then, after the transmission is installed and before starting the engine, fill it with 4 or 5 quarts of ATF. Start the engine w/ the transmission in neutral, and fill with the remaining ATF as necessary. Tom and others may have more specific info about this.
