This is a hardened hub for durability and a
clean fit with your transmission seal.
We set very strict tolerances with the
run-out on our torque converters. This
measurement is taken from the hub in
conjunction with the pilot. All of our
torque converters are set at + or - 0.005 to
0.03. This will give you better
overall performance and a longer last torque
IMPELLER IS WELDED
The Impeller is also known as the pump.
This is the side of the converter that goes
toward the transmission. We weld the
fins in to draw the metal. This also
makes the fins much stronger than other
methods. We also bend some of the fins
to control the fluid in order to reach a
desired stall. The impeller works
using the spinning force from the engine and
the fins to pump the fluid. The
impellers use the fins in order to direct
the fluid to reach a certain pressure to
drive the transmission.
We use many different pitched fined stators
in order to reach the many different stalls
we offer. We rarely cut the stator
because of the slippage that can be created.
The sprag and race are hardened to give long
life and fight heat as well. Our
stators are built to handle very high
horse-powered engines. By obtaining
the stall using this method, it allows our
torque converters to put more of your
engines power to the ground. It also
makes our parts create less heat, making
them more efficient.
Our turbines are tightened and then welded
just as our impeller is. This makes
the fins in the turbine tighten up in order
to take a lot of abuse. Our turbines
also feature a hardened spline. These
features allow our parts to take more abuse
and gain durability. We build our
parts to last under extreme duress.
FIBER WASHER PLACEMENT
Every where possible, we are trying to take
out the weak spots in all of the converters.
In some of the converters we have replaced
the fiber washers/spacers with an Aircraft
Quality Aluminum spacer that can handle well
beyond the rest of the converter.
OVER SIZED BEARINGS
We have gotten rid of all of the waffle
bearings and have replaced them with high
quality and high strength bearings. In
our high stall converters, we use a heavy
duty bearing that comes out of a stamping
press. This means it can take the
shocking, extreme abuse that is demanded by
serious, high horsepower engines.
HIGH TECH WELDS
Our welds are a military style of positive
charged weld. We MIG weld all of our
converters with a fusion type. This
means we get a hot weld that sprays the wire
to the metal with such a high temp that it
actually makes the weld stronger than the
other ones. We do not cut any corners
with our welds on our converters.
