Re: 8" ATI converters on the street....?
Finally got the trans and 8" ATI converter in. The trans was still working great but turned out to have a good bit of damage in it. Clutches were about done, sprag was cracked and the splines were about half worn off the pump stator shaft... I guess 168k miles on a pump will do that.
So its all back together and seems to be working ok, just waiting for some cool weather now to hit the track. I'm VERY curious to see what it picks up. The converter feels VERY loose at WOT... I guess we'll see.
As for the driveability, it IS driveable, but certainly not pleasant. I won't likely keep this converter in it after some track testing. No way I could take it on a long trip with this converter in it. Time will tell...
