Have a glide with a old pro brake and when I get on the t brake button it pour's out fluid, Look's like it's coming from t brake solenoid but not sure, Going to get some carb cleaner and clean the fluid then try look for sure, Anybody have this issue before?

Should have 1/8 to 3/16 gap between converter and flexplate, some converters have the spacers built on so you do not need them. Also make sure the pilot is going into the crank.

That tells me the converter is bottoming on something inside the crank or hitting the flexplate bolts. You don't want that. Have a look and see whats preventing the converter from touching the flexplate pads.

1/8" inside the crank would be fine. You also need some room for the converter to move forwards and go furthur into the crank when its running. If you had a total of 1/4" play I would like to see it split in half. 1/8" in the crank and the possibility of another 1/8" of forward converter movement before the adapter hits the flat face of the crank pilot. Noting the 1/8" of forward movement to be the determining factor of how much is in the crank, so if there's more in the crank thats ok too.
