SVX Flex Plate

When it starts, i hear the damn thing hitting the bell housing on full throttle and as time goes on, it gets worse and requires less to start, the 1st one went all together with and left me on the highway.
Can they be reinforced?
OH! im also leaking gear oil as well<not sure if its from the input shaft though,im suspect considering the issue at hand.

why was it rebuilt in the first place, what happened to this thing before? did they reuse the torque converter? maybe replacing the torque converter would help? that's a wild stab, but i've never heard of this happening repeatedly.
really bad transmission or motor mounts (doubtful though). they'd have to be horrible because i've never had bad ones cause issues like you're having.

I went to school for automotive, but hated the automatic trannys, not my line of great exposure, so im not familiar to what to look for into this, im going to pull the engine (easier from top than bottom) to get to all this, that tranny is damn huge, if i had my way ( $ ) she would be changed to stick if i could, that would make her perfect.
No tranny mount nor engine mount issues from the time i bought her (2 summers ago), and the torgue converter was replaced twice, once from the begining, then "supposedly" the 2nd flex went and the screws were stripped from the first aamco in baltimore so the one here replaced it again.

no more trans issues and you get what you want. and they're not that expensive to find a manual trans to swap in.

Hope this provides some insight........

The last plate i ordered from subaru myself for those wonderful "mechanics" to put in, as to wether or not thay did or not is a different issue, this time its going to be at my hand, as for the std trans, this is most certianly going to happen at some point, i dont have the funds for the kit nor a complete car to strip as of yet so shes going to get her last plate for now, im picking up a smashed (drivers side door) svx in a couple of weeks guys so im prob going to sell stuff from it, just giving heads up ahead of time.
As for mods, shy of the under drive pully and an k&n in box (baffel removed), nothing else at this point.
