Tri Component has announced a new addition to its line of torque converter shims. As used in early 5R110W converters, (p/n FW-2-17) solves the “cupping” problem associated with standard-sized shims. The FW-2-17 shim prevents bearing failures caused by the O.D. of the shim being too large. The company says to use the shim with its fully enclosed bearing (FW-2-10) for optimum results.
