In the latest video from the Transtar Garage Studio, Dave Hritsko, technical parts specialist for Transtar, talks pumps and converter hubs.

“Anybody who’s been doing transmissions for a while knows there’s many types of converter hubs,” Hritsko says. The main difference between these types of hubs is that you have two different ways of centering the hub: bushing and bearings.
