I confirmed they sent me the wrong torque converter.
They sent me DA55.

DA55
Diameter -10.25 (9 Bolt Circle), Pilot - .825 (1.0 Tall), Mount - 4 Studs Welded Around Studs, Splines - 16
Notes - Lock-Up
2000-07 Focus 2.0L, 2.3L, 1999-04 Protege 1.6L

I should have received the DA54

DA54
Diameter -10.25 (8.875 Bolt Circle), Pilot - .825 (1.0 Tall), Mount - 4 Studs No Weld Around Studs, Splines - 16
Notes - Lock-Up
2000-07 Focus 2.0L, 2.3L, 1999-04 Protege 1.6L


The bolt circle is 1/8th different!!!!

That is why after 2 hrs of trying to get it to hook up it would not. It never was going to hook up!

UGGGGG

Now must wait for the correct torque converter to get here.

I ended up talking to Len today and he apologized profusely for the incorrect TQ Converter being sent. He just ordered it from his parts vendor and they sent him the wrong one.

I mean its the same converter the only difference is one is 9" bolt circle and one is 8.875" not noticeable by eye.

I am ordering one locally and sending the wrong one back to Len for a refund on it. On the + note he charged $350.00 for it and I will get the correct one locally for $175.00


cool engine brace for holding the engine up:


Len on floor


If you didnt know, I had a KAAZ LSD custom fit in this Lentech.

It will get worked out this week.

Peace,
Joe

Len usually orders the Ford Racing Torque Converter. Probably why it was $350.

Keep us posted on the Kaaz. I have a Torson in my Lentech. I have quaife on stand-by :)

Len told me it was a stock (not FR) TQ Converter.

The Torsen and Quaife are ATB type diffs, The KAAZ is a 1.5 way clutch type. It will react different then the ATB type. My only concern is I hope it is not clunky, but this is the new one with WPC treatment and is supposed to be quiet and require no break in at all. I will let you know how it is once we "get'r done" this week.

Peace.
