I was using those two terms interchangeably. I didn't realize they were two different things.

Here's a thread with pics of a bad flex "plate"

I see. So, the flex PLATE is inside the transmission? Is it rubber? Does it serve a simmilar function to that of the flex DISKS?

In the thread, DeliveryValve gives a great explanation of the purpose of the "metal" flex plate.

The starter is mounted to the same thing its turning, ... it doesn't lift or move the engine in any way other than the inertia of the rotation.

Yeah, but I'm guessing that if the MOUNT was worn out, the inertia from the starter could cause it to jerk and thus make a clunking noise, no?

I had this problem. Ended up being a loose motor mount bolt.

Motor mount bolt is a definite possibility. Or it might not be there at all. I dont think I did mounts for Donnie on that thing so its possible thats what it could be.

fyi, here's where the flex plate goes:

and whats left of that one is in pieces.
