torque converters
« on: 18 July 2020, 02:33 AM »
Question:  Are these refurbishable?

Also, A1232500102
I found a NOS one, and also found these replacement numbers
1152501702 A1232500102, 1232500102, A7222501602, 7222501602, 1152501702, 1162501002

Are these all the same part?

Would I be able to fit this part on one of my late 70's M110's?


As usual, your input is greatly appreciated!

I don’t know about the part numbers, but they are definitely able to be refurbished. A transmission shop will be able to overhaul them, they have to be opened up and re-welded/ balanced etc.

A1232500102 is the same part as A7222501602
It's a 270mm diameter converter used in 722.0xx and 722.1xx transmissions, or specifically: 722.005, 722.007, 722.100 to 722.113, 722.115 to 722.122
The 280S/SE/SEL with M110 engines used three different transmissions: 722.101, 722.103 and 722.112. Based on that, the converter will fit.


p.s.: Xentry doesn't recognise those two part numbers at all: A1152501702, A1162501002

As for refurbs, as TJ already said, they're perfectly rebuildable.
Here's how it's done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nk6YqloTNWw
