View Full Version : How can you tell if damper plate needs replacement

"I've pulled my trans (3GM30/Kanzaki) and was planning on replacing the damper plate as well since it was accessable but it seems frozen on. Can I just leave it and re-use it? Three of four springs are tight with the fourth only slightly loose. When is it considered too loose or just worn out? Is there a trick to removing it?http://www.marineengine.com/discus/messages/12498/284833.jpgDamper plate photo
