So the plan this weekend was to swap out my tired torqueflight for a brand new unit from John Cope in my 69 RR. I am using the same torque converter that I installed last year after the rebuild of my 440. As you can see from the photos, it is not seating nearly far enough in the trans. There are no distinct "clunks" as the converter seats in the trans. I fought with this for over an hour and could not make any progress. In fact, I cannot even get it to seat back in the trans it came out of. It is a Hughes 2800 rpm unit. What gives? Is the converter bad? Time for a new one?
