Rebuilt torque converter

My 65 Elky just had the 350 trans rebuilt and they charged me $200 for a rebuilt torque converter. Does this sound right ? or am I being screwed. I never heard of rebuilding the TQ, I could have bought a name brand new one for the same price. They also couldn't give me an idea what the stall speed is. Then it took them two days to find the correct u-joints. I haven't got to really road test it yet as its pouring rain, but at about 40 mph I'm pulling 2000 rpm, which seems a little high, and is the same as before the rebuild. And this guy came highly recommended by some old timers. Any thoughts on this would be welcome

I personally would never pay $200 USD for a rebuilt torque converter. I'm not sure what the standard price is but its just something I wouldn't do.

Rebuilt TQ

Thanks, It doesn't seem right to me either, but I guess I'm stuck with it, didn't find out until after I paid the bill, but I won't be sending any work his way.
