    Picked up a 904 and found it has the rear cooling line fitting broken off flush with the case. Any ideas on the best way to get this out withouttrashing the trans with filings from drilling and tapping?

    Also, I was told I need a torque converter specific to a 360 due to external balance. Will my 318 flex plate work or do I need a new one also?

    Thanks..

    Try an easyout.

    As far as the converter goes you can use the 318 converter as long as you buy the proper b&m 360 flex plate. Or if you want to use the 318 flex plate you can buy the weight kit for your converter and weld them on as per the directions.

    I had the same thing on a trans I bought from JEGS, just ta[ in a easy out that fits in the hole without drilling should come right out. I have some of those fittings if needed for the ride.
