    Rebuilt Turbo Torque converters

    Some years back a friend was working at a local transmission supply/machine shop.

    One section was for rebuilding converters, both for stock and performance use.

    Us local T-M guys arraigned a group buy for 6, A-413, non-lockup Turbo converters.

    These were select converter cores with no damage or problems to start with.

    All were rebuilt with torrington bearings and every fin was furnace brazed.

    These were built with high strength in mind, not with a higher stall speed.

    My dream of a drag race minivan is over so I'm mentioning this today.

    I financed the deal and still have 3, never run units, sitting on my shelf.

    My wholesale cost at the time was almost $300.00 each, plus core.

    If anyone is interested as say $250.00 each please let me know.

    There will be no core charge but shipping will probably be high.

    I took some pics of them during the process and will attach.

    Any questions, comments or shipping ideas are welcome.

    Thanks
    Randy

    Hopefully these pics come through and comply with the rules.

    There is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor.

    I may be interested in buying one. Do you have any feedback on any that have been installed?

    Re: Rebuilt Turbo Torque converters

    Sorry I don't have any info at the present time.

    I do have pics of them apart and hope to post them soon.

    They started out as Turbo factory high stall non lockup units,

    This deal was back before my stroke and am leery of giving inaccurate info.

    The guys who used them were all from out of town and were happy with them.

    The T-M community has died down around here so I've lost most all my contacts.

    My wife and I got very sick after Christmas with some respiratory/cold illness.

    This has prevented me from posting pics in a timely manner.

    I need to figure how to copy some pics of the photographs and post them up.

    The pictures show them apart with the furnace brazing and inside.

    Furnace brazing every fin used to be a big deal but I don't know about now.

    There may be a better process used now.

    Thanks
    Randy
