    Is anyone using their Heavy Duty RV towing converter? The price seems pretty cheap. Let me know what you think about them.

    Im interested in this too.

    Still hoping the GOV'T will ban the use of loud stereos with RAP music. [​IMG]

    Only thing I'd check to see is if the converter vanes are fully brazed (think maybe they say "furnace brazed") and thats about it. You can ask them if they have complaints about them, sometimes you actually get an honest answer. the reality is that almost all converters you buy are rebuilt units anyway, so its not like one starts out better than the other, they are basically all GM pieces originally. Check with a local trans shop and see what they can do for you. Most sell "towing" or "truck" converters, and they are rebuilt locally a lot of times, so warranty may actually be included. one I had re-done locally had a one year warranty. Course that warranty was for the shop, but the guy would have returned it to me had it been necessary. Lockup torque converter completely rebuilt, my core, for less than $150. Not bad. Think my "towing" TH400 converter was less than $100 locally.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?
