th350 convertor

If you dont put enough tranny fluid in convertor when installing , will it regulate itself on startup. How does the fluid get in convertor when car is running? Thanks, Jum

The fluid gets into the converter through the splined collar in the middle. If there isn't enough in it, it will flow in there. Just get as much in it as you can.

All the converter needs is a splash of fluid.

The pump constantly refills the converter since this fluid travels from the converter to the cooler and returns to lube the tranny.
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
