Hays flexplate

Post  Godzilla on February 19th 2012, 11:42 am

I purchased a Hayes flexplate # 12-060 sometime ago for my new 588 ci. from Jegs. When i tried to install it, the holes wouldnt all line up. I can get 4 to align but the other 2 would not line up. I have turned this thing around several times, with no luck. I have 3 460 engines on engine stands and it wont line up with any of them. I have a crank on the shelf and it wont line up with it. I tried to talk to a tech at Hayes and got nowhere. He said i have a problem with my cranks. I think it must have been packed wrong. The flexplate its' self has FLX46011 and QDF1809 etched on it. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Turn it around and see if it fits. Some flex-plates will go on either way except for the bolt pattern.

I had a big problem with a Hays flexplate!!!! The darn thing was very tight on the las bolt but got it to go. I should have checked the flexplate/starter interface but forgot to before installing the engine. It positioned the ring gear too far back into the bell. The starter would work for about 6 starts then just grind and not turn the engine over. Went through 2 starters then pulled the trans and put in a stock F250 flexplate and never had another problem. It sheared the teeth off the very end of the bendix on both starters. [img][/img][img][/img]

The Hays is on the left stock on the right.
