    Maybe, what brand and cost? Just remember this quote from Ben Franklin, "

    I work for Dorman. You sure you have it torque'd down properly?

    OK cool. Let me know if you think you got another defective unit. Did you mark this one?

    Yes I marked this one only thing I noticed I was able to slide it almost all the way on by hand then righted it the rest of the way on but so far so good

    are you having any trouble starting the car? If it's an automatic, perhaps a piece of the ring-gear came off the flex-plate (???)


    Let us know how that new HB goes! That's a more-likely culprit.
