Howdy Ssedan64! I Too Saw That Video On Youtube. As You Can See The Torque Converter Move Forward, It Is Not Ballooning As So Many People Have Said They Do. I Think This Situation Is Almost Always Just Over Pressure In The Torque Converter/cooler Feed. I Have Yet To See Or Hear Valid Evidence Of So Called Ballooning. Probable Causes Of Excess Pressure To Do This Would Be Torque Converter Internal Damage Or Trash, Restricted Cooler Or Lines, Or Too Great Of A Flow From Feed Circuit In Pump. Furthermore Since The Video Said He Had Already Replaced The Thrust Bearing In The Engine, What I See In This Video Is How Much The Flexplate Is Flexing!
