So nice he is still around. I remember him spending a good bit of unpaid time on the phone with me answering questions. I didn't end up buying anything because that ZJ went to the yard.

Mark-318-IT hi all,
talked with Martin, he confirms it is a crack. he says that i can get it tig welded . i'll try to get a couple of quotes here in italy today.

HighLonesome Sure looks like a crack, causing the spacing between the CPS and ring gear to be too tight. Or the CPS isn't in the proper position, although it looks right in the pics. I'd get a new torque converter at this point because I could never sleep soundly knowing that crack is there.

Timo_90xj Yeap, definitely grind the ring gear if you're gonna grind something. That way you will also see if it is cracked or not.
That being said, I'd wait what M.Saine has to say about it before doing anything.

yjsaabman I would grind the ring gear before grinding the sensor. It's hard to damage a piece of metal by grinding on it. A magnetic pickup sensor, OTH...

Mark-318-IT lil update, tranny down again (pita).
MAYBE, and i'm just saying maybe, the ring of the converter it's not cracked. it's just an optical effect.

the knocking sound comes from that "junction" contacting the cps sensor.

how is this possible? bigger converter? converter not properly seated into the tranny? cps not seated correctly? is the cps postion adjustable? can i grind the cps a hair and the conver another hair and call it good to race?

Mr. Puddles Should be a no brainer but make sure the alignment dowels are the (will be 2 of them) and not pushed flush into one side. I had a similar issue and I think the alignment was out. For giggles does the noise go away if you loosen the starter while its running? Dont need to fully remove it just back the bolts out 2 or 3 turns.

Mark-318-IT i'll pull the tranny down and then i'll see what i can do.

edit: i'm so pis*ed though
06-25-2021 06:44 AM
Timo_90xj Contact M.Saine if you find out ring gear was welded incorrectlh to the converter.
06-25-2021 02:42 AM
Mark-318-IT torque converter is from martin saine like everything else in this tranny....so yes, i think this has been rebuilt.
probably not welded correctly, i don't know honestly.

gonna pull down the tranny sunday morning probably (waht a pita!) to look for more carnage.

btw, i do have my older torque converter. is it possibile to swap the ring gears from the older converter to this new one? or, is it possbile to weld that crack in the ring gear?

i'm hoping i don't have to buy another torque converter honestly.

Timo_90xj Did you install a new/ rebuilt torque converter? If so, it's very well possible the starter ring gear which is welded to TC was not welded onto it square, but instead it has some out-of-alignment.
Starter ring gear has marks close to the crack which shows rubbing, so that is the area where it has rubbed and not elsewhere.

So it's either a manufacturing fault, torque converter and/ or flex plate installment issue, or a part failure that just happened.
