When installing a torque convertor should you pour fluid directly into the unit? The one I got with my trans rebuild had some fluid in it with plastic caps holding it in. Is this the only fluid required?
Yes...you can pour fluid directly into the converter. Don't fill it. It'll make a mess. Make sure the fluid in it is ATF and not mineral spirits to keep it from rusting on the shelf. After installation of trans, just check and top off the fluid through the dipstick as usual. I don't know what trans you have but a bone dry C6 takes 12 quarts.
The trouble with being on top...You always have to look over your shoulder. The best never rest. Fear the FORD thunder!!!
