torque converter

Does anyone know if a torque converter in a 1999 psd will work in a 1997 psd? my 97 is throwing the excessive tc slippage code and have the 1999 tc laying around.

Only thig I could find was tht there are 4 stud converters and 6 stud converters. As long as the 4r100 part is for a diesel, and the stud count is the same, you should be fine. Just consider that if it's a stock converter, it's not going to be much better than what you are replacing, so you may want to use it as a core and just have one built if you can swing it. Swapping a converter is more work on these trucks than if want to do twice if the 99 converter is not brand new or an upgraded one.
