Exclamation Torque Converter Question

Im lookin at gettin a 91 2wd Cummins with the auto. I have some questions as this will be my first Cummins maybe . What is the auto tranny in it? It needs a torque converter, how hard is it to replace, and what is a good replacement one? Also how hard is it to replace a torque plate? What is a torque plate? The price is only a cool $1000 for the truck. Thanks

If the truck is nonintercooled it will have a 727 trans in it. 727 is a nonOD trans.

If the truck is intercooled it will have a 518. The 518 is an OD trans, nonlockup converter.

Torque plate???? Do you mean flex plate????

I never recommend installing a new converter in an old trans. If your going to take the effort to drop the trans to do a converter swap. Rebuild that trans while it is on the ground.

Take my word for it. It would realy make your day to have the trans die a few months later. Then find out that no trany person on this earth would reuse your almost new converter.

He said torque plate. But I went and looked at it and decided it would take more money than I really want to put into it. Had a fuel leak, he had to use ether to start it and he couldnt remember the last oil change. Im goin to look at a 93 W250 next
