you probably lost a blade in the converter.. the change in location inside threw it out of balance..

hopefully you drained the transmission pan and checked for fragments..

the fluid flow from the torque converter doe get into the pump.. so sometimes it tears up the pump.. it can also get into the valve body and farther into the passages..

this is one of the reasons that furnace brazed converters are used in racing.. so the fins can't come off nearly as easily..

are you going to take you damaged converter to the torque converter shop and have them measure the end play and then cut it apart.. to see what kinda damage happened..

i am taking its not a stock converter. . depending on how many shards tells you if the transmission needs to be torn down..

by the way.. the front half of the converter makes one hell of a nut and bolt tray.

transmission or converter shops should not charge you a lot to cut your converter open.. take all the parts with you..

why worry about the internal end play.. that changes the stall speed slightly.. and how efficient it is.
