My searches have come up empty, so I am going to ask. What is the difference between a lock up, and non lock torque converter? I understand the stall rpm, but can't seem to find an answer to this. Or the simple question is which converter do I need for my TF999?
The input shaft is splined to the very end, ie no smooth part, so I think it would be the non lock up, however a thread I read said, a mechanical lock up rather than an electronic one??????
Thanks in advance

You will want the non-lockup low stall one. Splines to the end means non lockup. The CJ and early YJ (pre 91) 999 did not have the electronic lockup. The ones that were lockup units were mechanical/hydraulic.
