How critical is this.....

I was just underneath my car about to lossen the allen for the coupler from the torque tube to the trany, when I marked the trany shaft it suddenly occured to me that this part was not going to be on the new trany so i would have no referance mark when putting the car back together with the new trany.....so how critical is it that the coupler is on the right spline of the new tranny shaft.....????

I fail to see why it would make a difference. The coupler is balanced, the torque tube shaft is balanced and the clutch disk is balanced. There is nothing else on the torque tube side that can be aligned.

It's not critical at all. Just make sure when you reinstall the new tranny to run the bolt back down and properly torque it.

You don't have to be a certified tech to get torqued!!!!
