Torque converters are cheap, around $100 because they can easily be rebuilt. But they almost never go bad, because they only have one bearing, and it is always bathed in oil.
So why do you think you even need one?
It bolts to the drive plate, which is like a light flywheel replacement, so that the starter has a ring gear to engage. So it it not part of the transmission at all, and is between the transmission and engine. If it is leaking, it is not hard to replace the seals and bushings once you take the transmission out.

How to install a torque converter in a 2000 2.5Lt on Ford ranger 2 wheel drive?


You need to remove the transmission to do this. Remove the inspection cover at the junction of the engine and transmission to get to the bolts to disconnect the torque converter from the drive plate (the part with teeth that the starter engages). Remove the driveshaft, then the transmission. The torque converter will come out with the transmission. Pull the old torque converter from the transmission, and install the new one. Ensure the torque converter goes all the way into the transmission/hydraulic pump. Reinstall the transmission, ensuring that the torque converter is still free to turn during the entire installation process, especially while drawing up the transmission to the engine. Once the transmission is bolted up, reinstall the bolts holding the torque converter to the drive plate. Reinstall the drive shaft and the inspection cover.

If you haven't done any major mechanical work on a car before, seek the help of someone who has. You will need a hoist or a jack and jack stands, and a good set of tools.

Does a torque converter for a 1989 ford bronco trwo have antyhing to do with a fly wheel


The torque converter bolts to the flex plate at the rear of the engine. It supplies the link between the engine to the transmission.

It's known as a "Flex Plate" and not a "Fly Wheel". The flywheel is use on a standard transmission.

What are the wheel bearing torque specs on an 87 ford f150 4x4


torque specs dont really work with wheel bearings,its better to do it by feel,front wheel bearings with ratchet nuts,----usually tighten good and snug by hand and tap on the rotor a few times to seat the bearings,then good and snug again,not really hard,and back off 1/8 to a 1/16th of a turn,then tighten with your hand until it stops freely..you just dont want them too tight to wear out the new bearings
