Torque Converter - need some help - low/ medium/ high stall?
as you can see in my other posts I went from a droning noise and replacing bushings and u joints over to pulling my transmission and rebuilding it myself.
Transmission is now cleaned up and ready for disassembly, but I asking myself which specs I should look for when getting a new torque converter.
I'm reading a lot about stall speed and I already "learned" from other posts stall speed is no real spec, get it so far. High stall seems to be for performance acceleration, bringing up the oil temp and so on.
a) I can't find any rpm for my stock TC and
b) I still don't fully understand which way I need to go in terms rpm.
I would for now just say "go with a HD stock replacement". Used to work for now, so why make changes.
I guess this part number from Oregon Performance Parts would be close to stock?!?
But perhaps you can help educating me a bit and tell me in which situations I would see which difference going low, medium, high stall.
