Which side of a flexplate faces the block and which side faces the tranny? This is in a Chevy 350 if it makes any difference.

There are nubs on the flexplate that the torque converter bolts to. The nubs can either provide a recessed area for the bolt heads to increase clearancebetween the bolt and the block, or they can provide a recessed area for the nubs on the torque converter to sit in.

There are no marking on my flex plate and it replaced a special AA flexplate which might be different anyway.

Currently I mounted the flexplate with the nubs pointing toward the Torque Converter provided a recessed area for the bolt heads. The starter teeth are approx 1/2" away from the flex plate. Does this sound correct?
