    This may be a dumb question but. I dont have a converter cover on my transmission TH350? I know a lot of car guys that run without them. However I go through mud, creeks and tall streams during hunting season and on some trail rides? I cant see it being water proof???? :dunno: :ears:

    A converter cover isnt waterproof...I dont run one and I've never had a problem. The transmission front pump cover has a seal where the t-converter plugs into it. If it wasnt sealed, there would be tranny fluid leaking from it. Not a dumb question either...

    I would be worried if you ran sand at all. I kind broke my front axle in the sand after a jump....it shot some sand in that direction and ever since it has been leaking. By it I mean either the engine or tranny seal. I think its cheap insurance to keep dirt away from the seals.

    I think that you should have a cover on just keep sticks, dust and grit from getting up in the seals. The covers aren't something that stops all debris but they are a good first line of defense.
