Hey Guys! I finally got my car done and posted it today in the Facebook group. It was the green and black Camaro with IROC wheels! If I don't get many views on here I may add this to the Facebook group. I heard some noise from the converter before I dropped it off at the paint shop. It sounded like a rubbing noise like taking a piece of sand paper and rubbing it on something real fast. It went away or at least I thought. When I brought the car home yesterday that noise came back but worse. I put it up on the lift and checked my converter to flexplate clearance and it was fine. I thought to rotate the converter by hand and I heard some stuff rattling around inside the converter as I spun it. It was like marbles in a coffee can. I could feel these marble like pieces moving around at the bottom of the converter. Checked fluid and dropped pan and it looked like normal dust on the magnet with no metal. This trans was rebuilt about 30k miles ago and it was behind a stock 305 that came with the car until I dropped in my 425 horse small block which probably grenaded that stock converter. Stupid on my part not to put one in when I had the engine out. My question is: In everyone's opinion does it sound like I should just be able to put a new converter in, clean out the cooler, change the fluid and filter and be okay? All gears work fine and shift fine, car just feels weak due to the converter not being able to properly transfer the engines torque to the transmission.
