I’ll bite. Other than a three dimensional geometry ‘donut’ (I looked it up), what is a ‘torus’ and where does it go on a truck?

Hydra-Matic transmission torus readings

What, in general, is a torus?

Here is a video.

I believe Chevrolet used a big square O ring and GMC actually used a gasket. Does your flywheel and torrus cover have a groove cut for the O ring?

It's that flat gasket surface and most suppliers only have the O ring type . And mine is the 20 hole note 30 only made for about a year and a half . was hoping someone had actually bought one that had same problem as me .
