Any toyota techs on board ?

My son has a 94 toyota 4x4 pickup 22re automatic trans. The flexplate broke between engine and trans. We got the transmission out without much problem. when i was away from the truck he unbolted the flexplate from the crank and didn't remember if the thick spacer goes between the crank and flexplate or on the converter side with the bolt heads.
We tried it with the spacer next to the crank ,but can only get trans. about 3/4 inch away from engine block . I am sure torque converter is in all the way ,book says 0.787 in. back from front of trans. case. So my thoughts were we may have the spacer in the wrong position. I have searched for some photos or diagrams in my factory service manual but no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Any toyota techs on board ?

Isn't there an imprint on the spacer from the bolt heads? My alldata shows 1 spacer between crank and flexplate and 1 on converter side of flexplate. Hope this helps.

Re: Any toyota techs on board ?

So, are you saying that the torque converter is hitting the flywheel before the bellhousing is up against the block?
Seems like most automatic Toyotas have the thick spacer between the crank and flexplate, and the thinner cupped one on the outside of the flexplate. Some have a pin on the spacer indexed to the crank flange.
Just be sure the torque converter is all the way in. Be sure the dowell pins are lubed up. Hope you put a rear main seal in there while you were at it. Maybe that was the reason for removing the flexplate? I usually make paint match marks on that stuff to make it idiot proof 'cause I can be a real idiot sometimes.

Checkout http://www.toyotanation.com/ for all your Toy questions. Just like this site but Toyotas. Actually, I believe that site and this site are now owned by the same entity. I signed up as I got one of these too...

Hey Matt - Thanks for the info (link) here. Looks like something that just might come in handy as I have a few Toyota's in the family.

Re: Any toyota techs on board ?

Hey all you Camaro guys with Toyotas. I wrench on Toyotas for a living. So, if you get stuck on a repair I might be able to help. Toyota Nation is a pretty good source of info., but I have seen mis-information on there a few times. Heck, some day I may even own a Toyota, but for now it is just my old Chevys: '41, '67, & '74.
