Automatic Transmission - Installed my Fuddle converter
08-19-2005, 09:02 PM
About 2 weeks ago I was cruising and the converter I had at that time was a Hughes 2500RPM stall and it cracked on me!I ordered a Fuddle 2500RPM stall for it and installed it and I must say that this converter is much better than the Hughes I had!The only thing I can think of why that Hughes cracked is maybe it was defective since I got it!I do not know!I do not have a NBS LS1 truck,mine is a 97 model with a vortec350 but I wanted to chime in and tell yall about this!
John,thanks again for getting this converter out to me so quikly,very much appreciated and it is goin great!Thanks for a fantastic product

What do you need help on????Installing the converter????I did mine myself,not bad to do just make dsure that the converter is all the way on the input shaft or you will ruin the pump or the tranny!When you slide the converter you will hear it snap,then turn the converter and push on it till you hear it snap again,that is when it is seated all the way on the input shaft!Once you try it you will know what I am talking about!Also do not forget to put some fluid in the converter before you install it,I put almost 1 full quart in mine first!
anyone else has some tips for him that I missed?

You can install them dry but do not fire the car up until you have pumped fluid into it and have extra fluid handy once its running, continually top up and check level.
Like said above, install the converter on the input shaft (in the trans) then attach it to the flexplate, if you just bolt it up to the flexplate and then slide the trans on you will destroy the pump and trans as it MAY NOT have full engagement.
All the best.
