I may have spoken too soon,I can't seem to align the dowel pin and get it in contact with the motor,it's about a 1/2 inch out,may remove the transfer case to aid in aligning the trans  hopefully thats all she'll need,I'd hate to drop it down and find its the wrong converter,but if thats the case then I'll order the other,the input shaft is machined on this one from the 88 and not on the burned out 87,I 'll have to check out the website where it came from(Daaco)reman units from Tennessee (R -24 model)

I looked on the Dacco site catalog and it lists the R 24 as the lo stall ,6 cyl. non lock up ( which is the part # on the box I have ) also has 2 slots on the shaft the catalog states the R 26 is a high stall ,6 cyl.lock up unit. and has no slots on the  shaft going over the input shaft

Unfortunately it looks like you may  have the wrong converter. You stated in a couple posts ago that the transmission you are using is a lock up transmission but the part number and description sounds like a non lock up converter. Someone must have changed the transmission in the 88 that you got it from, because everything I've read says 88 had non lockup converters. Good luck.

I know just my luck.It does appear to have serviced at some point,yeah prob swapped trans altogether.I think when the wife's ex visited he was looking at my trans out of the 87 which was smoked,the replacement has the machined end and the old converter I tossed had no cut outs in the shaft,so glad I found the online catalog ,now just have to take her out and get me a different converter. ::)

Boy do I feel stupid...I went into the scap bin where I had dropped the replacement trans original converter,its definatley the r 24 with the cut outs on the shaft ,I'm taking the trans out again anyways and removing the t/c so whatever is holding me up will be dealt with accordingly :banghead:

Maybe the converter wasn't all the way seated in? It should drag slightly when you turn it. 3 clunks in till it's all the way down or it drags when you spin it.

Yes that's what I figured.I looked into the input shaft area and saw the 2 spots where the tabs were supposed to be ,lined em up and she did make the 3 clunks.I tried it several times just to make sure
