Torque converter hybrid sandwich

Has any one had a custom converter made up ?

I need to fit a c4 behind a non ford I6 (aussie mtr) - I've got the bellhousing sorted, but am wondering if its possible to fit a (as an example) chev TC front shell to a ford TC back shell ?

Looking for options - thanks.

The bolt pattern on the converter that meets the engine flywheel and the hub that slides into the back of the crankshaft are easy to setup for size.

Where problems come up are on depths of these areas and the over all height of the converter. All must be correct for the setup you need to function correctly.

The converter must fit the spacing between engine, tranny , any adapter(?) correctly so the trans pump gears are engaged correctly, the splines line up for the input shaft and stator support splines

Most converter builders make use of the parts that best fit the spacing in between the engine and trans. As Crosley stated, the heights and spacing between the engine and trans is critical for success. Accurate measurement of all dimensions will dictate your success rate. You will also need to know engine torque characteristics, engine RPM range, desired stall speed, and intended use to correctly configure converter internal parts.
