No. It'll likely destroy the transmission pump.

When I bought my car, it had a non working C4 that was supposedly fresh. Upon tear down, we found a missing block plate and tar shed pump.

Do you recommend any of the aftermarket ones. I hacked up the t5 plate but still sucks to get to converter bolts.      Thanks

I used the universal 157/16th PA plate. Worked great. ..

I just used a AOD plate, but my car has a 164 tooth flex plate.

Using the plate depends on converter pull up I have cars with aftermarket bells with no plate and cars with 2 plates so it really depends on the clearance.

Ok thanks. With the t5 plate in there can't get a good measurement on the distance between converter and flywheel with converter all the way in trans. But by feel seems good. Will order a plate for auto then we can have access hole to measure.
