Yeah it is really sparse info out on the net about 1st gen flex plates. That one should be right though as they specifically said it was for a 1st gen flex plate. Other one was for aftermarket ATS stuff. Sorry about the screwup :banghead:

oh thats all right. What i'm doing is putting an allison from a 2nd gen engine on a 1st gen engine. Do you think the torque specs for the dodge adapter and torque converter will work?

Not sure on that one. I take it you found that allison out of something other than a dodge :lol: The specs might work but I am really not sure about that. Might have to wait a few hours for the ones who will know to wake up..
