  • Dacco Converters - Floaty Quick death

    I am on a quest to find a good stock replacement torque converter.
    It seems there are many re-manufacturing companies out there, but all have mixed reviews.

    I just purchased a Dacco converter from Advance Auto, and was lucky enough to catch a major issue with it before putting it on my transmission.
    Upon inspection, they painted around an original label on the converter. When I opened it up, I found metal floaty debris and dark trans fluid. One of the metal debris balls fell out of the converter and rolled somewhere in the kitchen. I need to find it. So - that POS is going back. I'd advise against using DACCO brand converters.

    I'm hearing Alliance and Precision are better, but some folks had problems with them too.
    Any word on who a good supplier would be for a STOCK converter?

    Any help appreciated

    Precision. Call Richard @ Detroit Transmision. He'll give you the 30 min tour. Very knowledgeable.

      I bought a Roadrunner converter to put in my 98Z but had a little incident with a ditch before I could put it in.

      They do everything from cut/clean OEM to restalled OEM to billet/balloon plated/etc. I couldn't find any bad reviews, just a quite a few people saying they used them in their transmission shops with no problems. Might be worth your time to take a look http://www.roadrunnerconverters.com/

            I'm not from the area. I did a Google Search and didn't come up with a business called "Detroit Transmission". Does it have a different name?

                  Detroit Gearbox is the name of the place. Also goes by Bewick Transmission I think? Either way, Rich is far and away the most professional trans guy I've encountered in the area. No one else I'd go to.
