1974 Travco torque converter Fay Holland 4-24-09  
I Have a 1974 Travco RV 27 FT. The moter is a 440 moter. The transmission went out and I had it rebuilt. Returned with the wrong torque converter. Had a car converter fixed to work. The transmission has gone out again and I am replacing with a rebuilt 727 transmission. I need a torque converter but dont know what to look for. When I call transmission shops they want to know if the shaft is steel or iron. Why does it matter. It bolts to the flywheel ?

OK Basics, I am not 100% on 727s, There are several things that are important. There is a lump on the engine end that slides into the crank shaft. It centers and suports that end of the converter. The other end has three things it engages, A outside stator support, a centre "Main" shaft and these two things slide into the converter. The colar/sealing surface that slides into the transmision and drives the pump inside the transmision. All these things may vary though I am un sure about what commonly changes with these things. If I were you I would do some research and find the wholesaler who supplies these bone heads there parts. In my area Larry's in Calgary rebuilds his own converters and he sells to the public. His guys on the phone will explain what they need to know. You will need a converter that has the correct stall for a 440. Generally we go for a lower stall for motor homes and lower still for the "big block" Again a good trany part supplier will spend the time to sell you the correct stuff. (and save you a buck or two) Good Luck

Try TCI transmissions, or Art Carr in Huntington Beach Ca--both extremely knowledgable on 727.
