OK....so got it all back together, all new grade 8 hardware for tranny/motor, new(rebuilt) TC, new flex plate, new flex plate reinforcing ring, new flex plate bolts, torqued correctly and to the right specs, with loc tite, removed PO's trans drop kit, checked motor mounts today, one broken so I replaced both.....driven 75 miles so far and no major issues. flex plate has a slight wobble, appears to be a WARPED plate straight from the box!!! (auto zone) it seems to not be engaging every 3rd or 4th start, and has a bit of vibration during acceleration, but other than that, seems to be holding up. The Heep is running like an Ethiopian chasing a cheeseburger taped to a cheetah.... but I feel like it may be short lived, not sure how long this thing will last with a wobble. Anyone have any advice?

hey bro did you ever find out the problem ? im going through the same thing on mt 5th flexplate and second torque converter. ist a rebuilt 4.2 and we just pulled it and are sending it to a machine shop to check for crank runout or anything in that matter. I can tell you your starter problem is from the warped flexplate. I to just had that problem. and most likely your new plate bent right away from what ever problem your going through.
