    So im in the process of changine my tranny pump seal and when i take a look at the torque converter, I see this.

    Would it be bad if i just left it like this and put it back in the tranny?

    Looks to me like the bearing is toast, those scuffs aren't from the seal surface.

    I'd be careful about where that paint is worn as well, where the snout is welded to the converte...when they are rebuilt, if they aren't done right, the seal can actually rub on that weld. BTDT.

    I would think Crocus cloth would work better than cheese cloth:haha::haha:
