I always assumed that an 8" converter was 8" and so on. Is this correct? I have a guy trying to tell me that this converter that measures 10", just like the 10" one I have, is really a companies version of an 8". Is this possible or is this guy full of it? I tried to call the company, Transking, but didn't get anyone. Thanks.

There is no such thing as an 8 inch that is 10 inches in diameter. The stator diameter is what is actually 8 inches or 10 inches which is inside the converter. You can't put an 8 inch stator in a 10 inch housing. They all use their respective diameter housings.
I wouldn't use a pan gasket from Trans King.
Just MY oppinion.

Although my transmission originally came from Transking, I agree with Alex. My tranny works real good (but it has been rebuilt and upgraded by a shop with higher standards), but the guys that run that place are first class jerks, and frankly, liars. After almost a dozen phone calls to them, and that many different stories about a part I needed to get my trans fixed and the whereabouts of a convertor of mine they had, I wouldnt trust them any farther than I could throw thier shop.

If it's a Transking convertor, I would run away from it just as fast as if it was a GER convertor.
