96 c1500 truck 4.3, 4L60e converter question

I have a96 c1500 truck 4.3, 4L60e transmission, We had it rebuilt and now the converter is lost within our shop. What will also fit this trans? I do have some 350turbo converters and a trans from a 98 jimmy 2wd 4.3. Will any of these fit?

TH350=NO, If the 98 Jimmy has a 700R4/4l60=YES, Has to be a 30spline TC.

the 96 trans and the 98 trans would both have the PWM lock control systems. The converter clutch material in both converters should be a carbon fiber material that is needed for the PWM system operation.

IF the 98 converter fits the 4l60e trans of the 1996, you should be fine

'96 trans has a polished tip on the input shaft about 3/4" long. The '98 may not. If the '98 trans has splines all the way to the tipof the input, the converter will not fit.

they dident start that till late 99 early 2000 yes the 98 converter wil fit the 96 when it comes to lockup linings.. you can upgrade to pwm but you cant put a non pwm converter with a pwm trans

Actually the late design 4L60E input shaft with splines on the end was released in mid-late 1998. For some reason GM released some in the S series trucks first from what I have seen.


The input shaft, stator support , bell housing , converter were all changed in design.
