I am now approaching dealing with those eight studs/nuts on the cast iron torque converter to crankshaft flange connection on those pre- 1962 chryslers.

While pulling the 413 from my '61 Chrysler I took off the nuts via the access plate on the bell housing to separate the TC from the crank. Now the short block is back from the machine shop and I'm wondering if it would be easier to install the TC before I put on the oil pan while the engine is still on the hoist then lower the engine-TC assembly into place. I don't know if there will be enough longitudinal play to allow the TC to install on the trans input shaft.

Anyone ever try this and what was the result? Thanks.

You run the risk of damaging the front seal or front pump by doing it that way. It would have to be in very close to perfect alignment to go together without problems. You could bolt up the TC before the oil pan but installing the pan after the engine is in place would not save you any hassle. Best to do it the FSM way.

Agreed, almost impossible to line things up in the pump.
