I have never noticed anything like you are explaining. I would contact the place you got the TC from and see what they say.

What You Are Seeing In There Is The Turbine In The Convertor. I Will Move Around Some. Make Sure That When You Put The Convertor On The Trans, I Seats All Of The Way In. You Should Hear Three Distinct Clunks And The Convertor Will Move In At The Same Time. To Do This, Start The Convertor On The Input Shaft. Hold The Pilot Snout In The Center Of The Convertor In One Hand And Use The Other Hand To Rotate The Convertor Back And Forth While Pushing In On The Center Pilot. You Can Turn It As Much As You Want Each Way. I Usually Go 1/2 To 3/4 Turn Each Way. When It Is Seated, You Should Not Bea Able To Get Your Fingers In Behind The Convertor Between It And The Trans Case. If You Have Any Questions On This. Please Feel Free To Hollar At Me And I Will Help The Best I Can

I fill the tc up until the tc bowl is full. I call the bowl where all the clutches and discs and fins are. Check the paper work that came with the tc. That should tell you how many quarts the tc holds. I would think 3 or 4 quarts. Thats how many I put in the tc's I have installed before and haven't had problems from not having enough fluid.

I AGREE WITH BIGC. PUT AT LEAST TWO QUARTS OF FLUID IN THE CONVERTOR BEFORE YOU PUT I ON. MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL A NEW TORQUE CONVERTOR SEAL AND LUBE THE SNOUT OF THE CONVERTOR BEFORE YOU INSTALL IT. YOU CAN USE TRANS FLUID OR SOME LIGHT GREASE ON THE CONVERTOR SNOUT. I ALWAYS USE SOME PERMATEX #1 SEALER ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE SEAL BEFORE DRIVING IT INTO THE PUMP. GOOD LUCK. HOPE THIS ALL HELPS.

My rule of thumb being the seal costs 2 bucks. Replace it anyways, it is only 2 bucks for that cost you know that you have a new seal in it. Also you know that seal is installed correctly. The seal we are talking about is the Front Input seal on the tranny that seals the torque converter with the tranny pump.
