you also need to stock up on Stanley avatars in different positions....I like that thinker one!


Maybe Glen's idea would work using those rare earth magnets (I buy em cheap at ACE Hardware in the tool aisle) on the torque converter to play around with balance weights......

If you remove the converter bolts and loosen off the bell housing bolts to create some space between the TC plate and TC then you could run the engine without connection to the transmission. You would need to put some wedges around the bell housing to hold it back and tie the TQ to the transmission to keep it from sliding around. If the vibration goes away then you know it's probably TC related, if it doesn't you know it's in the engine.

Duh! I didn't think that idea all the way through!

If you've got a good arm, I suppose you could wrap a cord around the front damper and start it like a lawn mower!

OK.  I'm pretty sure I know what the problem is.  Put it up on the lift and pulled the torque converter inspection plate. Ran the car.  Noise coming from inside the TC.  Sounded like a broken stator - whatever that should sound like.  Put some magnets on the TC and the vibration smoothed out somewhat before they shot off inside the housing scattering magnetic shrapnel like a terrorist's land mine.

Yes.  Now you won't have to do your archaoligical dig through centuries of moparts, unearthing forgotton treasures (junk?) and exploring ancient civilizations.
 

 
Seriously, your offer was appreciated, though.

I told ya it was a good time to put in another converter!   LOL!

Find somebody that carries Dayco Re-builts if ya want an inexpensive one.  See if you can get the Factory Hi-stall version.   It'll work better with the engine setup.

You don't know how much I agonized over that when the tranny was out.
 
And you don't know how much I'm kicking myself now.
