    Don't use a second hand converter you risk sending all that shit through your trans. They really aren't very expensive reco and at a minimum they're flushed have a new lock up plate and are checked for runout and minimum shaft/seal diameter.

    It's a steel plate with friction material on it that allows your automatic transmission to lock solid like a manual clutch does when cruising. This reduced trans temp and fuel use.
