I've got a torque converter that came with my transmission that is of unknown quality(ie junkyard tranny)

The vehicle that the tranny is going in is not currently drivable so "taking it for a spin" is out of the question:D

Does anyone know a way to check if a torque converter is good outside of the vehicle?

It looked VERY clean and the fluid that dumped on the garage floor from it was new looking and didn't smell burnt:p

Any input or help would be appreciated.

For most trannys converters are pretty cheap. In most cases it is not worth the time to see if it works by driving the rig. If it is a TH350 Go to your local parts store and pick one with the stall you want. Forget the "well it might work." and replace it with a "It will work." It will save you heartache in the end.

Unfortunately, it is one of those "special" Cadillac TH400s. Not too expensive but not too cheap either :(
