Help. :)

Anybody out there have a good stall convertor with a 1.850" early flat pilot???
I have a later 1.375" pilot convertor doesn't it figure... Lol.

Talk to me.
I have cash or maybe something to trade if need be...

This is for my LTD project. I finally have a 10 to 1 460 with ported Eddy heads together for her and need a convertor.



:D

Converter

Scott,

A few years ago when I got that 4500 converter through you from Howards it had a removeable bushing on the end that lets you use either size. Maybe you could get one of those bushings from Howards for cheap. They are quite a tight interference fit or just get one made ?

FWIW Mark

Scotty, I have two converters that measure 1.750" on the snout. 1 is a RV stall from Summit or Jegs (can't remember) never used and a TCI Street fighter with a 3,500 stall, never used and a stock C-6 converter thats used but worked good when we pulled it (I'd have to dig it out to measure the snout). Would any of these work for you?

The pilot for the early convertors is about 1/2" in height and 1.850" in diameter.

The pilot for the later convertors is about 1 1/2" in length and has a 1.375" diameter at the end that registers in the crank. The pilot then spreads like a funnel to the back of the convertor and is quite a bit larger.

I have a 12.5" convertor that is suppose to be a 3000 stall in a 5000 pound 4x4 that has maybe 50 miles on it. But that stall may be different in your application.

I lost my torque convertor builder last year. I was sorry to see Howard move on to other things.

Again guys 2500 stall is more than enough given 3.25 gears and a HP peak of 5200 rpm.

Thanks for looking.

I want to extend a great big thank you to all that responded to my post for a convertor.

I have the perfect convertor on the way as I write this. B&M 2400 holeshot. Thank you Andy for the quick service and good price.

Respectfully,
Scotty J. / RHP

Scotty call Midwest Converter 1-815-229-9808. Dennis will get you what you need.
Eric,

I spoke at length this morning with Dennis at midwest about building me a convertor. Thank you for the tip. He is a good guy...

The B&M 2400 hole shot convertor I got grenaded after 4 flash tests in second gear. This 2400 stall convertor stalled at over 3K until it let go and went to 4500 and then stopped working all together. It sounds like a bunch of marbles rolling around inside the converter. lol I checked the one way clutch for the stator and it is destroyed. Turns easily both ways and is not supposed to.

I in no way blame the member I purchased the convertor from as it arrived in new condition as stated. This is obviously a B&M issue which I will take up with them. I just wanted to put this out there.

Anybody else have QC issues the B&M product?

The trans appears to be unharmed however with all the garbage passed through it I am going to use a performance reman I have here at the shop with a B&M transpack shift improver kit to further improve the shift quality.

Pretty bummed at having to removed a trans from a fresh engine build on my back no less... :(

Thanks guys...

:D

Thank you for posting this info as I have my tranny out right now and I had small vibration I couldn't seem to track down, and it seems I have the tapered crank and should have a 1.375 convertor and the PO installed a 1.848 one. I am changing my convertor anyhow, but now I know why I had wear on the hub going into the front pump.

Thanks!!
