Death Rattle of Death: Part Deux

For Part 1:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...t=death+rattle

Alright, so I went through all of the steps given to me in that last thread and didnt find fix the thing, so I dropped the trans, and took off the torque converter and the flexplate and WOW, the flexplate was cracked all the way around and was wobbling back and forth, thats what was causing the DEATH RATTLE of DEATH after all.
So I got a new one, and installed it AND NOW IT WONT START!!!!

But one thing i noticed before the install was that the pattern of cutaway sections of steel around the edges of the plate were different than the ones on the stock plate, I checked my Haynes manual, which said the sensor on the bell housing read the teeth off the flywheel, not the cutaway areas, and the rest was identical. Could Haynes have steered me wrong and could this sensor be stopping my Heep from starting?

I have done so much work on this thing in the past couple weeks and I need it to run. When I try to start the vehicle, it just sounds like the timing is WAY off, and yes, I am getting spark and fuel. Im so confused.



EDIT: I also put in a new rear main seal, oil pump, trans filter, trans seals, pan seals for engine and trans, new plugs wires, etc. etc. etc...

I'll paypal anyone who correctly identifies my problem $5 seriously.

I am getting ****ing tired of this.

Ill be willing to bet that the problem is with the crank angle sensor on the back of the motor above the bell housing, mabey there is metal in the sensor, or it is jarred loose, take a good look at it

The only way that sensor is busted is if I did it in taking the trans out, because it started before I did all this work. Ill give it a look.

Ok, well, turns out the flywheel/flexplate from a 1990 will not work on 1993 becuase the crank angle sensor reads the grooves in the back, which are slightly different.


Now Ive got another problem.


Neither Autozone nor Advance Auto carry that part for a 93, I have no idea why. Anyone know of someplace besides a dealer or scrapyard that would?

Anyone got a tranny out right now any want to sell me theirs?
