v8440 is on a distinguished road

I had an old cadillac hearse one time with a 472 in it that just ripped the center of the flexplate clean out. I mean, the center was still bolted to the crankshaft, and the outer part was still bolted to the torque converter. It actually went with little drama. I was pulling out from a gas station, and there was a thump, then everything except park was neutral. I've also heard of some dodge trucks with the cummins doing that. I'd be curious to see what kind of failure your flexplate experienced.
