What do with a 99 Torque Converter
Ok, I have a 99 f250 (Jan 1999 build date) with a very noisy torque converter. I know about the problems with the 99 TC and TSB on the 1999 torque converters.
Here is my dilemma, the transmission shifts nicely and the fluid looks good, but I can’t take the noise, it is driving me nuts (I love the diesel noise, but hate the rocks in can sound at idle)
So these are my options as I see it:
1. Replace the TC with a stock ford TC and pump seal (I’ve been told that the new Ford TC are actually the 6.0 converters) 1C3Z-7902-CARM, is this true?
2. Wait until the transmission dies and do a JW or BTS trans, I don’t put many miles on the truck
3. Replace it with a billet converter; it just seems like a waist, if I’m still going to be replacing the trans in 2 years.
What other things should I do, while I have the transmission out? Pump seal
I don’t tow very often and don’t plan on making any crazy horsepower in the near future. I am planning to do a PHP chip
