need help on Torque value....

Aloha guys.

I did a search on this question but couldn't find the answer I'm looking for.

What is the torque value on Torque converter and the valve body?

As for the valve body, I did find the value of 80 - 97in/lb but that looks rather low so I just wanted to double check. As for torque converter, I couldn't find anything. I have Chilton manual but it wasn't in there (or maybe I missed it).

Help me out on these please. I'm almoist finish with my converter swap and update my 1-2 and 2-3 accm. but I can't put the parts together because of this.

As always, thanks in advance guys.

Toshi

Use caution with those specs overtightening can be worse than under tightening. I torque the pin bolts to 120inlbs, the rest of the valvebody bolts to 100inlbs, the converter doesn't need to be torqued just don't use a big ole honkin impact on it and make sure you have good nuts.

Got it!!

And don't worry about tools. I hate using air-tools so I only use them only when abusolutely necessary. takes time wi hand tools but less breakage that way.

Converter nut look pretty good shape but just in case, I did replaced it though.

As always, thanks a lot, guys. Now I'm going outside to complete my project. It's 11:15am, nice, sunny and upper 80's here in Hawaii now..........

Aloha guys!!

Just wanted to let everybody know that I finished my Project T-bird Trans. Unfortunately I couldn't modify the separator plate as per tech article due to unavailabilities of the drill bits, but most of the important stuff is done!!

Updated the 1-2 accum. with updated springs (my stock bottom spring was broken into three pieces) and updated 2-3 accum. Also have updated TC.

Just finished about hour and half ago (11PM) and test drove it and WOW!! It was worth every minute of my labor!! Can't wait 'till separator mod! I'm even considering J-Mod now.

Anyway, I'm so happy I just had to post it here and wanted to thank everybody for the help.

Toshi
