    FLM tranny

    I have just received my flm tranny and I am having issues getting it together. I have everything back together except the shock tower mount. I have put the screws in but the tranny doesnt seem to hold the screws. I tried using the lock nuts that came with the tranny but they will not fit inside the little hole and the screw doesnt extend past the second hole if that makes sense. Could anyone post a pic of how thier shock tower is mounted to the tranny?

    Had the same issue when I received it. The way to do it is to squeeze a nut into each of those "cutaway tubes" as I call them. After you squeeze a nut in there, then the screw will go in, and into the nut. Easy peasy.
    I'll post a pic if you're still having issues.

    Mine were a little big and I had to grind them down a little so that they would fit.

    Like this. I squeezed them in using a gerber tool. Zoom in if you have to

    Also, it doesn't make a difference. As long as there is zero movement it's fine for this application.

    Yeah.... but its more likely to cross-thread with the nylon up. It should go the other way. Not trying to be a jerk... just saying for the OP... put your nuts on the right way.

    I had to grind the nuts down and it works great. I was left with two really long screws though. Any idea what they are for? They were the only ones I couldn't figure out.

    Did you install the motor protector? Those are long screws.

    I couldn't get my motor protector to work. The screws were too long.

    The screws fit just fine on my FLM including the motor protector, but it's been a couple years since I installed one so things may have changed.
