posted November 13, 2002 02:07 AM i have a lock out t-350 what i was wondering what exactly happens when it is turned on i have been told it basicly pulls the fluid out of the converter is this true? i have always ran it in 2nd gear so i didn't worry about it but moving up i will be able to run in drive and if what i was told is true plan to hook it up so it would be like running a non funcional converter. anybody got any isea how this deal works

The converter has a friction surface inside much like a clutch. Hydraulic pressure is applied thru the input shaft to apply the cluth and couple the convertor housing to tranny input shaft. Fluid remains in convertor during this.

ALL IT DOES IS TAKE OUT THE SLIP IN THE CONVERTER FOR BETTER FUEL MILEAGE BUT IT DEFINITELY WON'T HOLD UP UNDER RACING CONDITIONS SAVE YOURESELF A LOT OF TROUBLE AND STAY WITH A REGULAR CONVERTER.
