Re: Engine swap vs shop

I doubt it would matter which direction. It is just notches, not threads. Kind of like how a distributor engages with an oil pump. It is a very simple connection. Imagine taking a piece of 2" diameter pipe and cutting a pair of square sections out of the end, 180 degrees apart. When those square voids align with the pump then the pipe can slide the rest of the way home.

All my swaps involving automatics have been GM. I am not sure what sort of access the AW4 will give you, but I expect that from one angle or another you will be able to get a sense of how far back the TC needs to be relative to the bell housing or some other fixed point.
