The Roto 5 uses a “flywheel” with no torque converter. D&D can guide the shop through what is needed to drill that flywheel for a torque converter. Or, you can get a Buick 215 flex plate that was used with their auto trans, they didn’t use the Roto, and drill that to match up to the 200 TC, also gotta fab up some spacers and use the D&D adapter pilot that comes with the adapter plate. Not a big deal either way, just needs to be right.

Sounds like you need to get hold of someone who has done the 2004R conversion and get your shop guy involved directly with them and D&D, a lot can get confused in a translation. Put the word out here and on the 6163Skylark forum.
