Are ford torque converters interchangeable?

Are torque converters interchangeable?

Q: Torque converter interchange

It is possible, but would have to be confirmed. Typically, there will be an alpha-numeric code, or a color designation, on the original converter(s).

Are torque converters different sizes?

Converters usually range from eleven to twelve inches in diameter all the way down the lowest, 7 inches. The smaller the torque converter you have, the lower amount of fluid that has to get pumped through it.

Can I use my old torque converter?

Hello – while you could re-use the torque converter (both cars use the AODE 4-speed transmission), I wouldn’t. Lots of reasons – if the old transmission self-destructed, there is virtually NO chance to get any debris captured in the old torque converter out of it with fluid flushing.

Can I just replace torque converter?

The good news is, if it is just your torque converter that is having issues since it’s a self-contained unit, you may not need to replace or rebuild your whole transmission. Torque converters can be serviced or replaced as a single unit.

Will a 700R4 torque converter fit a TH350?

In a word, NO. 7004r’s use a lockup converter. It’s a totally different converter than TH350 uses.

Is a Turbo 350 and a Turbo 400 torque converter the same?

They are completely different transmissions. The Turbo 400 is larger, longer, and heavier than the Turbo 350 and was designed to live behind higher-torque applications such as big-blocks.

Is a 3500 stall Streetable?

One of the biggest bangs for the buck you can buy is a stall converter. Most of the “daily driven” street cars we build have anything from 2,400 on up to a 3,500 stall converters in them and they are very streetable with no problems.

How do I choose the right torque converter?

Information You Should Know Before You Call

  1. Vehicle weight.
  2. Rearend gear ratio.
  3. Tire size (diameter)
  4. Transmission and its low gear.
  5. Trans brake (Y/N)
  6. Engine size (horsepower/torque if known)
  7. Are you using a power adder.
  8. Exhaust.

Are smaller torque converter better?

Larger-diameter converters are usually more efficient and deliver less slippage, while smaller-diameter converters offer more stall speed and more slippage. Vehicle weight is another major factor that should be considered when selecting a converter.

Can torque converter bolts be reused?

Premium Member. I reuse factory torque converter bolts on a daily basis without any issues. I do agree with what was said before that most likely your factory converter bolts are bottoming out on the tips before the head gets a good seat which is probably the root cause of the issue.

How do you clean a stall converter?

Do Used transmissions come with torque converters?

Does A Torque Converter Come With A Transmission? Yes. Provided it’s an automatic transmission. Your transmission won’t be able to transfer power from the engine to the axles without a torque converter.

Can you replace a torque converter without removing the transmission?

Can You Replace A Torque Converter Without Removing The Transmission? Although the torque converter itself is relatively inexpensive (between $150 and $350, depending on the vehicle), replacing it requires removing the transmission and removing it for the new one to take place.

What are signs of a bad torque converter?

6 Signs of a Failing Torque Converter

  • Loss of Acceleration. …
  • Slipping Between Gears. …
  • Vehicle Won’t Shift at All. …
  • Transmission is Overheating. …
  • Transmission Fluid Leak. …
  • Bad Transmission Fluid.

How do I fix the shudder on my Ford transmission?

Fortunately, fixing a shuddering transmission is often as simple as getting a transmission flush to replace the contaminated transmission fluid with clean, fresh fluid.

What’s the difference between a TH350 and 700R4?

The 700R4 has an overdrive while the TH350 does not. Overdrives allow for high-speed cruising, which saves fuel while lowering torque.

What transmission can replace a 700R4?

In 1990, GM changed the name of the 700r4 transmission to 4L60, which stood for 4-speed Longitudinal 6,000 lb gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). For 1993, the hydraulic shifting system was replaced with electronic controls (4L60E).

Will a 700R4 bolt up to a 350 engine?

Yes, they bolt right in. Better if your th350 is a longtail (truck) tranny. That way you wont need another driveshaft.

How do you tell a Turbo 350 from a 400?

The TH-350 uses a square pan, with one corner cut off. The TH-400 uses an oblong-shaped pan with one side having a “hump” in the pan and one side is curved while the other two sides are straight. The TH-400 pan also has two circular indentations on the humped side of the pan.

How much HP and torque can a TH350 handle?

The Stage 1 TH350 is rated up to 450 hp. Those seeking something a little stronger can check out the Stage 2 version (PN PA35102) that holds 550 hp and retails for $1,500 with a real world street price of $1,175 from most vendors.

Is a TH350 the same length as a TH400?

The TH350 with a 12″ tail is the same length as the TH400 with a 9″ tail. Even then, the crossmember mount is a different distance from the back of the block.

Do you need a stall converter with a cam?

If you build a 500-horsepower engine with a radical cam, then you will need a higher stall converter to allow the vehicle to idle.

What does a 3000 stall converter do?

What does 3000 rpm stall mean? If you are needed a 3000 RPM stall, then they will get around 2000 RPM, which doesn’t get it off that starting line. You need to remember, 80% of the race is going to be the first 100ft. If you aren’t able to get off the line, then you will lose the race.

Is a 3800 stall converter Streetable?

It works fine on the street and is no problem on the highway. The only time I think it may be an issue was in a lot of start/stop traffic or up a lot of hills. I can run down the highway at 3500 rpm steady state and you wouldn’t know it was there.

What size torque converter do I need?

Stock torque converters generally have a stall speed around 1,800-2,000 rpm. Higher stall speeds become necessary when horsepower and torque happen at higher rpm ranges. You want stall speed and maximum engine torque to happen around the same rpm range.

What size stall torque converter do I need?

For mild performance cars with something like a 350 HP engine, a 2,200 – 2,400 stall is about right. The basic rule of thumb is, if your engine “comes alive” at say, 3,500 RPM, then you want a stall converter with about 3,500 of stall to it.

Are Hughes torque converters any good?

they are good, my buddy bought one and liked it , but that stall seems low, i had a GER 11″ and it was rated at 2500 but it was more like 1800 and didnt do much, i later got a TCI 10″ street fighter rated at 3000 (more like 2400)and it worked good, I always go with the lowest rpm they give. Old school means real!
