OOPS! Gotta correct myself there. Since torque converters also pump fluid and help determine shift points (plus I spelled the word "converter" wrong) there's something not right about that statement. I do remember someone using an old PowerGlide with no converter, but I think he cut the converter apart and tied to the part that fit over the input shaft.

Dadgummit, that's what I get for trying to help... If I had Paul's fork, I'd stick it in my eye!
