    Has anyone here built a run-in stand using a bell off a TF and a empty converter?

    I would not. Get a flywheel. If you had a modified pump housing with a support bearing for the converter snout I would. Lot of work and the correct flywheel would be the best to use.

      I built one using a bell housing but used a flywheel instead. I wouldn't think you'd want to spin a dry torque converter?
