    McLeod modular Bellhousing probs

    So I bought a McLeod 8710-01 modular bell to put a tko600 behind my LS1...
    They sent me the wrong cap (adapter plate) that bolts the transmission to the rest of the bellhousing. I called them and they sent me another cap...the same one I already have! Now I have two of the wrong caps, at least I think so.
    Has anyone used the McLeod 8710-01 with their LS motor? If so please chime in with any advice.

    The adapter plate doesn't bolt up to the transmission. It bolts to the bell but has a different bolt pattern than the trans. I spent most of the day monday researching McLoeds part numbers for this kit and others that were similar, and found the problem. They sent me the adapter plate for a ford style tko
    (p/n 8702-2) when I needed a gm style tko plate (8702-1). They said it is in the mail, so I guess I will be ok when the new one arrives.
    Thanks!
