John I am glad you're feeling better and are on the mend!
The converter has been in for a while. I remember how to put in the converter when Tony, @70aarcuda
taught me. Put transmission standing up with bellhousing facing up (like a bowl), then place converter in and turn it until it drops down a couple times. Took some getting used to. I am pretty sure I got the car running and driving as good as I will be able to with the converter. I can get it to shift around 2k rpms with no flare ups and if I hammer the gas it will still shift really nicely without a flare up.
Sorry I didn't reply sooner as it has been a crazy month for me and last week was no different. Only difference now is I am a proud owner of this!
