Check Vehicle Fit

Vehicles with automatic transmissions have a flex plate. The flex plates connects the engine and transmission. Most flex plates are made of a thick piece of sheet metal with bolt holes for the torque converter and teeth for the starter. The job of a flex plate is to allow for expansion of the torque converter as engine RPM increases. The constant expansion and contraction of a flex plate over time can result cracks and/or shearing of the flex plate. A damaged flex plate can create serious (expensive) damage. Broken flex plates can not be repaired, they must be replaced. ATP flex plates are made of high quality steel and contain the correct bolt hole spacing and ring gear teeth just like the original part to ensure long life and durability

  • Q:

    does this flex plate work the same as a fly wheel, does it flex so that the starter dont wear the teeth off the gears on the flexplate if the starter head gear ingages too far, the flywheel thats on my truck now has the teeth worn off from the starter, as well as the teeth on the starter head, would this flexplate be ideal for this situation, upon replacing the starter ? basicly what im asking is does the flexplate actually flex to keep the gears from wearing out? would it be better to purchase this flexplate than a flywheel, and or does this flexplate come with the gear ring attached to it already? is whats shown in the picture what i get?
