TH400 Question.......

Hi everyone, I'm new to the FSJ thing, so please bear with me.

I purchased 2 Waggies ('76-360 '78-401) with 2 bad motors.
Anyway the question is that I replaced the 360 in the 76 and got it running. BUT, now it sounds like the torque converter is grinding, and it won't move. I'm a pint low on the tranny fluid and the tranny grinds moving from any gear to park ( ratcheting sound).

Thanks for the help

Welcome....

Did you ensure that the TC was seated all the way in the tranny? If you twisted it to seat it... it drops twice not once....just a thought...

I didn't remove the trannie or t-case at all. I was worried about the torque converter because while placing the motor I was spinning the TQ around quite abit.

Re: TH400 Question.......

Torque converter has to get on the input shaft...and the pump....sounds like you better pull trans..and put in the other one...pump housing is more than likely cracked...and with the grinding...probably messed up torque converter also...

I found out that the tranny and TQ were fine. Turns out that the t-case was in neutral......DOH!

I appreciate the help, and thanks to Kevin that emailed with the solution.
