The torqueconverter is a halfinch to long. The back is touching the bolts that secure the adaptor to the pump. Wrong convertor?

So I remoyed the lockwashers and counterbored the bolt circle 1/16'' deeper and now have about 3/32 clearance. It would seem that convertors vary in shape, meaning the case can have a radis that mirrors the turbine.

It was just a thought. You may have a couple things mismatched. The drive sleeve, between the pump and the converter, should keep the converter from hitting the pump bolts. The tangs on that sleeve are only about 1/2" long. That means if you find a way to move the converter 1/2" towards the engine you probably won't be turning the pump when the engine is running.

With the convertor slid in till it hits the pump bolts,and the bolt pads against the flexplate I still have a 1/4'' gap bellhousing to adaptorplate

Are you sure you have the converter to pump drive sleeve installed? It should keep the converter from hitting the pump.
