Torque Converters Explained -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator,
impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and
practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only
transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives
the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you
take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time.
In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a
year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my
belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I
hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of
torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor
cutting this one in half.

Premium Members at EricTheCarGuy.com just for fun. Here's a link to more

Driving a Powerglide on the Street
This is the first drive of the Eaton-blown 363/Powerglide combination.
Literally the second time I started the engine - so I took it easy (sorry,
no burnouts or high-speed hijinks). This combination should go easy 9's.
I can't believe how driveable it is...
