Jasper Engines & Transmissions is now selling torque converters over the counter. The remanufactured OTC torque converters are c available for the following 1989-2007 applications:
- Chrysler 47RE/48RE (Dodge, Ram, 2500 – 3500)
- Ford E4OD/4R100/5R110 (Ford F-150 - F-550, and Ford E-150 - E-350)
“There’s a market out there for these converters, especially for the heavy-duty diesel engine applications,” said Craig Leuck, Jasper transmission division manager. “We can help that local shop whose customer has a customized transmission for their truck, and it needs a heavy-duty converter to handle the job, particularly for towing purposes.”
A remanufactured converter features a heavy-duty billet steel front cover.
“As the converter gets hot over time, a standard stamped steel front cover will balloon,” said Leuck. “This causes the front lock-up surface to swell up and lose contact with the piston and burn up the lock-up lining. Billet steel front covers will not expand.”
Each converter is also balanced to within three grams to eliminate any unwanted vibrations in either the engine or transmission. The converter is covered by a three-year, 100,000 mi. nationwide parts only warranty.
