Sounds like you have a late model engine, with a one piece seal..{ 87 and newer] I think you just have the wrong flywheel.

This is most likely. I don't remember there being 5 speed trucks before 86.

Also, you may have to pull the pilot bushing so the converter will mount properly.

late model engines and early model engines do have a different seal i found the right flexplate but i did learn that a flex plate for a 95 fullsize truck with a 350 is the same as a 95 s-10 with a 4.3 v-6

As (jbsjunk) says, pull the pilot bushing out of the crankshat or the converter may not seat properly.

Zip.
