AW4 Torque Converter Swap

I'm replacing the torque converter in my 96 AW4 and I want to make for damn sure it's done right.

I swapped a 98 engine into this 96 XJ last winter, and I must have screwed up the torque converter when I took the old engine off the trans / put the new engine on the trans, because the torque converter crapped out very shortly after the engine swap.

Who has tips for installation / seals / torque specs?

TIA

Just line it up correctly on install.

Be aware of the ears on the torque converter as you slide it into the tranny. Make sure you are fully engaged on the teeth inside the tranny. It is easy to be off a couple degrees and the motor/tranny can bolt together without being engaged fully. Cant imagine the guts of the torque converter were damaged without improper lubrication.

good luck

It started leaking like a seive after I reinstalled it -

"improper lubrication" definitely occurred.

That's why I want to make SURE I don't fork it up this time.
Taking the drivetrain apart every other weekend is really fun and everything, but it's beginning to cut into my beerdrinking time.
