Torque Converter

Just sent out my torque converter from my tf999 to get rebuilt and found out its completely shot. Having a hard time finding a replacement for it but plenty for the a904's. So my question is will a 904's converter work in the 999. I know they are both basically the same trans.

I don't really do automatics, but have a TF999 in the shop I was going to swap into green Jeep. What exactly wears out on a torque converter, and what is involved in rebuilding one?

ETA, just found this....

The thrust bearings in these (and just about every other Chrysler up until the 45RFE) fall apart and turn into shrapnel tearing up the converters internals. I use to rebuild them but I forget the interchangeability of the 999 and 904. Check out http://www.daccoinc.com/products/torque-converters they may have a catalog that can help you out or give them a call...

Do you have a local transmission shop? I got mine at one. Gave them the number stamped on the side of the pan mounting surface.

Why not just send your converter to PTC and have them rebuild it ! Kenny Ford at PTC can fix yours and make it stall at whatever RPM you would like.

I have delt with them for years. They just rebuilt my tf999 converter.

I would recomend if you off road this jeep a lot to just do away with the lock up converter and convert the trans to a non lock up you will like it a whole lot better, and you also wont notice any on road difference. JMO

What did that run you? Again, I know squat about automatics, but I have a TF999 that I'm going to swap in one of these days and from what I've read you don't put a used Torque Converter into a nice newly rebuild tranny.

I was able to order a new torque converter from auto zone a few months back. It wasn't a performance or upgraded one. Cost about $150 I believe.

It's been working great ever since.
